Sylvester Stallone Confirms Mel Gibson for 'The Expendables 3'?

Mel Gibson confirmed for The Expendables 3?

Mad Max versus Rocky/Rambo? That's the showdown we've been teased with over the past month, thanks to rumors about Mel Gibson being cast to play the central villain in writer/star Sylvester Stallone's The Expendables 3.

Sly previously announced that the Oscar-winning actor/filmmaker had passed on the chance to direct the cheesy action-throwback flick, so it came as a bit of a surprise when Gibson's name later reappeared as a potential new cast addition. On the other hand, Gibson's next onscreen appearance will be that of the antagonist in director Robert Rodriguez' Machete Kills, where he plays a madman bent on spreading anarchy across the globe. That is to say, it's possible that Mel's decided to have some fun (while revitalizing his career in the process), before he returns to making serious fare like his next planned directorial effort: the gruesome Viking tale Berserker.

Here is what Sly recently posted on his Twitter account:
