‘Expendables 3′ Director Hints Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Character Is Gay


In an interview with Grantland, 'Expendables 3' director Patrick Hughes was asked about the newly released film's final scene alluding to a relationship between Arnold Schwarzenegger's and Jet Li's characters.

Did the former-Governator just silently flip off Prop 8? Are two of the Expendables together by the end of the movie? ‘I believe they are,’ Hughes says, like he just got away with something amazing.

Buzzfeed breaks down the scene in question (spoiler alert): 

In the final scene of the film, the Expendables are at their favorite dive bar celebrating another successful mission of killing an endless parade of faceless bad guys. Lead Expendable Barney Ross (Stallone) approaches his old rival Trench (Arnold Schwarzenegger), who is commiserating with one of Ross’ former compatriots, Yin Yang (Jet Li), both of whom swooped in to help save Ross’ team in the climax of the movie.

“So, you’re working for Trench now?” Ross asks Yang, who responds by just shooting Trench a knowing look and a smile. As Ross turns to walk away, Trench and Yang lean in even closer to each other, grinning so widely, they almost start to giggle.

“You guys want to get a room?” asks Ross.

“We don’t need a room!” Trench says with a laugh. He pulls Yang in close, Yang rests his head on Trench’s chest, and the two of them laugh contentedly.

As Ross walks away, Trench exclaims, “So jealous!”

Expendables 3 starring Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Antonio Banderas, Kelsey Grammer, Kellan Lutz, Mel Gibson, and Harrison Ford is in currently in theaters. 

Planning on seeing the film?

    I would never give one dime to this horror show (for the exact reason that Bruno mentioned above.) I will find it on You Tube soon, I’m sure.

    This was a horrible movie. Some good action but dear God it was bad. Kellen Lutz should have been the gay character, would have made much more sense. But still, bad bad acting.

    What @Bruno says; this little gimmick sounds like an Urban Outfitters or Whole Foods thing–play to the disenfranchise sensibilities and use their money to keep ’em disenfranchised.

  4. Steve Talbert says

    Sounds like healthy well adjusted straight guys. This is a good thing. They can acknowledge mutual love and respect between 2 guys without worrying that they will be perceived as “fags” or something. You see this banter more and more with straight leads in TV shows appealing to people about 15 to 25.

  5. TonyJazz says

    Mel Gibson should have been the gay character. Maybe he should have kissed someone, too….

    (what a homophobic jerk he is….)

  6. Me says

    I think this director is trying to sell this movie…any way he can

    the previous 2 movies awful

    so the 3rd out in the pirate world…weeks before release..

    the Production company suing everything and everyone they can…for this leak out version

    clever way to make money leak it out…sue everyone and attract the gays…

    not boying it…

    A cast consisting of Kelsey Grammar, Mel Gibson, Arnold Schwarzeneggar & Sylvester Stallone ? Is this movie funded by the Republican Party ? It should be called The Tea Party Lunatics Show off Their Guns !

    What a bunch of losers. I will NOT be seeing this awful movie full of D list faded “celebrities” who don’t want to pay any taxes.

  8. CB says

    Funny since Schwarzeneggar, Stallone, Grammar, etc. are all card carrying Republicans, not sure of the others.

  9. says

    The movie bombed BIG TIME this past weekend. The director will say just about anything to get some buzz to try to get people to show up.

    plenty of gay Republicans & conservatives out there…
    gay gene doesn’t preclude stupidity
