    I agree with the Stallone/Van Damme fight scene, horrible. The money would've been Stathan/Van Damme or Li/Van Damme, not Sly. But, I still enjoyed the movie immensely. If he wanted to bring more comedy, Kurt Russell! He's hilarious. As for a female, maybe bring out Geena Davis? She was dope in The Long Kiss Goodnight.

    If he's looking for a tech wizard type character he should get either Shia Labeauf or Jesse Eisenberg. Also if he's looking for a good strong female lead he should go after Amber Heard, I mean of course she's sexy but she's a good actress and she can be tough and dramatic when she wants to be, she'll fit in perfectly in the Expendables. Also too bad Steven Seagal won't be in it, but I really hope Wesley and Nic are still in talks.
