[News] Mel Gibson to Play Villain in 'Expendables 3,' Antonio Banderas Also Joins Cast



“Expendables 3” has found its bad guy!

Recent reports have confirmed that Mel Gibson will play the threequel’s main villain. Producer Sylvester Stallone confirmed the news, which he’d been teasing for weeks.

 Additionally, Stallone revealed that Antonio Banderas will join the star-studded cast, which includes the newly added Harrison Ford, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jason Statham, Jackie Chan, Dolph Lundgren, Mickey Rourke, and Kellan Lutz.

“He is a consummate actor and a gentleman,” Stallone said of Banderas in a statement — one notably unlike his recent inflammatory tweet about former cast member Bruce Willis. “Expendables 3” will reunite Stallone and Banderas on-screen for the first time since their 1995 movie “Assassins.”

Meanwhile, Gibson was once one of Hollywood’s most highly paid and acclaimed stars, until a string of personal embarrassments led to a major career setback. It seems his comeback strategy involves chewing scenery as the bad guy: He’s also playing the villain in Robert Rodriguez’s grindhouse flick “Machete Kills.”
