The Expendables 2 is a lot of things, but art is not one of them. The veritable cluster-F of action stars past and present was an ambitious venture when the original was organized two years ago, and the sequel only packs in more and more muscle. Let's just say there would no problem drawing blood from any of them, especially our old pal Sly Stallone. The promotional material for this film has primarily centered around how many guns and explosions you'll be seeing, but a recent piece of hype shows a more calm scene.
In a newly released banner to promote the forthcoming film, we find the testosterone-overloaded cast posed in an homage to Leonardo Da Vinci's "The Last Supper". Hit the jump to see the outrageous photo, because it really has to be seen.
The film follows Barney Ross (Stallone), Lee Christmas (Jason Statham), Yin Yang (Jet Li), Gunnar Jensen (Dolph Lundgren), Toll Road (Randy Couture) and Hale Caesar (Terry Crews) who are all returning from The Expendables. Joining them this time around are Billy the Kid (Liam Hemsworth) and Maggie (Yu Nan), gathering together at the request of one Mr. Church (Bruce Willis) who enlists the Expendables crew to take on a seemingly simple job. When things go awry, one of their own is viciously killed and the Expendables find themselves hungry for revenge in hostile territory. With the odds against them, the team explode a path of destruction through the opposing forces. In their quest for justice, they also happen to stop a world dominating Plutonium deal, whether intentional or just happy luck.
With a plot like that, the film is definitely going to be a face burner, both in terms of awesomeness and the UV damage from all of the firepower. So with those character motivations and story points in mind, I urge you to feast your eyes on an artistic nod that seems to insinuate Sylvester Stallone is Jesus. And based on my limited art knowledge, that would make Chuck Norris their Judas. Sorry if that turns out to be a spoiler, folks.
