The Expendables 4 is an upcoming American action film set to be released in the year 2022 with no confirmed released date. The film will be directed by Scott Waugh, and Spencer Cohen has written the script of the movie with some revisions from John Joseph Connolly and Max Adams. The Expendables was released almost a decade back in the year 2010, which earned around $ 804 million in the Box Office, and it became a franchise in itself.
The Cast Of The Movie
Even though the plot of the movie is not disclosed, the officials of the movie have announced the cast of the movie, and they have confirmed that the previous cast of the Expendables would return so far only Jason Statham, Dolph Lundgren, Randy Couture, and Sylvester Stallone.
The fans can also expect to see some new faces, such as the renowned rapper 50 Cent, Megan Fox, and Martial arts legend Tony Jaa. The fans would be disheartened to know that Terry Crews will not appear for the fourth franchise of the movie. The production of the movie is supposed to start this fall.
Unfortunately, we do not have any information about Arnold Schwarzenegger’s return because he said he would return to the film if Sylvester Stallone returns. Sylvester Stallone has returned to the movie, but we do not have any official news related to Arnold’s return in the movie.
The Expected Plot
When we think of ‘The Expendables,’ we think that the movie will be full of action and gunfire where the Expendables team would either eliminate someone or capture someone, and fans would have loved it.
We can expect an action-packed storyline in the fourth sequel of the movie as well, and Jason Constantine said that “The fourth sequel of the movie will be a no-holds-barred action film that will raise the stakes, and this film will be the biggest and most badass adventure, yet.” Jason Constatine’s statement seemed to be promising and ambiguous at the same time.
Sadly, neither the director nor any officials related to the film had disclosed the upcoming movie’s plot. According to Hollywood Reporter, the plot of the movie will be focusing on the team of veteran mercenaries. And, unlike the initial movies of the franchise, which solely focused on Sylvester Stallone, the fourth franchise of the movie will not be doing this. Instead, they have decided to put Jason Statham in the limelight and Megan Fox in the lead actress role.
Since there is no information related to the upcoming movie, fans have decided to come up with their special theories, and they have been thinking about every unexpected twist and turns in the movie which will occur and have a high possibility to happen.
I am a huge fan of the franchise as well as of Sylvester Stallone and Jason Statham, and I have been enjoying these theories because it is fun to read and because the fans are creative and they come up with their fandoms.
Much to the disappointment of the fans, the film has not given any information related to the release date for the film, and the producers have teased that the film might have a possibility to be released next year in 2022.
The 2022 release date seems to be logical because of the complications related to the film such as Sylvester Stallone who was confirmed to be a part of the fourth movie of the franchise, decided to make an exit in 2017, which created an enormous difference in the creative aspect of the script and direction of the franchise was in the dark because fans would not like anyone else playing Sylvester Stallone’s role.
However, he returned to the film at the beginning of 2018, taking his role as Barney Ross. And since the COVID-19 pandemic is not over yet, it is difficult to assume the exact release date, and many films around the world have been delayed.
Where To Watch
Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, it is difficult to say if the film will be getting a traditional release, where it will be premiered on the silver screen only or if it will be getting a theatrical release as well a digital release.
Since there is no expected date and the film will be releasing in 2022, we can expect it to be getting a traditional release because more and more people are getting vaccinated every day and the situation is getting better it can be assumed that the film will only get a traditional release and it will be on the big screen for forty-five days, and then it will be available on OTT platforms.
Since the film will be available on OTT platforms after a while, there is a high possibility that the film will be available on Amazon Prime Video because the first three films are available there, and they would not let go of the fourth movie as well. However, this is an assumption as there has been no official announcement or confirmation related to the digital release of the movie.
