Sylvester Stallone confirms Mel Gibson in Expendables 3?

July 18th, 2013 by Edwin Torres Jr Comments



It looks like Sylvester Stallone has confirmed that Mel Gibsonwill indeed play the villain in The Expendables 3. He basically spells it out in this tweet that simply says:

 ”Mad Max vs Barney Ross….”

Gibson’s involvement with the project has been rumored for some time. At first it seemed like he might direct the movie, with Stallone even asking on twiiter what fans thought about such a thing.  Then another rumor hit saying that he would be playing the villain. It must be a done deal at this point right, or else why even tweet it?

Regardless of his issues, this would be a great project for Gibson to be a part of. I’m sure he would make a cool villain.


But that’s not all just a few hours ago Stallone tweeted twice. The first asked:

“Who is the newest, maybe toughest female on the planet?” Which was followed by:

“RR vs GC?”

I would take this to mean Ronda Rousey vs Gina Carano.

What do you guys make of all this?
