Expendables 2
Published on Tuesday, May 29, 2012 by

After a summer of comic book movies–Avengers, Batman, Spider-Man–the summer movie season will wrap up in August with Expendables 2. While this movie is a sequel to the first Expendables, and presumably builds off of that film and it’s Chuck Dixon penned prequel comic world, this movie may be comic fans best bet at watching a quasi-military comic on the big screen this summer.

Action! Adventure! Bullets! Bangs! Expendables 2 will see the band get together again. Mr. Church, played by Bruce Willis, reunites the Expendables for what should be an easy paycheck, but when one of their men is murdered on the job, their quest for revenge puts them deep in enemy territory and up against an unexpected threat.

Of course this film will capitalize on reuniting 80s action stars together in another film. The cast is a line-up of who’s-who from direct to video action movies: Bruce Willis, Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Dolph Lundgren, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Jet Li, and Chuck Norris.

G.I. Joe has been set back 9 months. Toys are trickling onto the shelves without a 2012 movie as support.

Ex2 is a quasi-military action movie without a toy line.

Unfortunately, these two can’t quite be combined but as fans are hungry for a comic style military movie Expendables 2 is the closest that we will have in 2012. Why continue grumbling about the missed G.I. Joe: Retaliation when we can transfer that energy into becoming excited about Expendables 2!
