The Expendables 2 has gained buzz for its collection of iconic action stars, a lineup that includes Sylvester Stallone, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Chuck Norris, Dolph Lundgren, Jet Li, Scott Adkins, Jason Statham, Bruce Willis and Arnold Schwarzenegger. However, there is lady joining the Expendables this time out – her name is Maggie, and she’s played by actress Yu Nan.
If you didn’t know that the team was going to be rolling with a (literal) femme fatale, it’s because Nan hasn’t been featured in The Expendables 2 trailer or official poster. But that changes today with some new images that put the femme Expendable in the foreground.
In The Expendables 2 - Mr. Church 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.” Check out Stallone as Barney Ross alongside Maggie (Nan), as they take on what looks to be one of those ‘unexpected threats’:
Not having seen Yu Nan in much (the closest comparison on her filmography is probably the Wachowski’s Speed Racer), we can’t really say how she’s going to do in this flick. But hey, Stallone and Co. didn’t choose her for nothing. Plus, Nan isn’t the only new recruit who has something to prove: Hunger Games star Liam Hemsworth has to prove that he deserves to be counted amongst this collection of tough guy elites.
The Expendables 2 will be in theaters on August 17, 2012.
