The Expendables 4, or EXPEND4BLES as it is being marketed, will include the return of many of Hollywood’s finest action actors. The plot of the series is straightforward: Sylvester Stallone captains a team of the greatest action actors of the ’80s, ’90s, ’00s, and ’10s. There appear to be fewer main characters in the fourth picture, but the action should still be exciting.
This is all the information we have thus far about The Expendables 4.

It’s been nearly a decade since the third installment, which featured a larger cast (including Mel Gibson as the villain) but ultimately failed to recapture the fun spirit of The Expendables 2. Due to its lackluster box office performance ($214 million on a budget of $100 million), the future of the Expendables franchise was called into question, and an all-female spinoff, The Expendables, was scrapped.
Stallone announced in November 2014 that it would receive an R rating again, and two years later, he announced that it will serve as the series finale. Stallone left the project between 2017 and 2018, citing creative difficulties, but was convinced to return by his coworkers, including Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Partially as a result of delays caused by worldwide constraints, we didn’t hear much more about it until the 2020s. But it’s finally escaped from its shaky development and will be out this year.
The Expendables 4: Is There a Teaser?
On June 7, 2023, Lionsgate posted a trailer for the film online. The teaser opens with Jason Statham’s Lee Christmas and Megan Fox’s Gina engaging in some intense foreplay, followed by a visit from Sylvester Stallone’s Barney Ross the next morning. Following this, we see a montage of the film’s explosive action sequences set to “Can’t Stop” by the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

Terry Crews is noticeably absent. After making allegations of s*xual assault against WME executive Adam Venit in 2018, he stated that he will no longer participate in the film or future installments in the franchise.
In support of the S*xual Assault Survivors’ Bill of Rights, he told a Senate committee (as reported by Mashable): “I’d done three movies called the Expendables with Sylvester Stallone. My manager received a call from the film’s producer, who requested that he have me withdraw from court so that I may appear in the film’s fourth chapter. And if I didn’t, things may get sticky.
Crews then tweeted that the producer in question was the similarly charged Avi Lerner. To what extent would I participate in this, or would I make a stand against it? That was the question I had to answer for myself. I’ve had to say no to some ventures,” he admitted.
Management got a call last week from Avi Lerner producer of EXPENDABLES 4 saying I could avoid any “problems” on the sequel if I dropped my case against @WME.
Guess who’s Sly’s agent?

Crews settled his lawsuit against Venit, but he still won’t participate in the movie.
Many other well-known actors, such as Pierce Brosnan, Jack Nicholson, Hulk Hogan, Dwayne Johnson, Clint Eastwood, and Jackie Chan, have also been considered for roles in the film.
It appears that Jean-Claude Van Damme’s desire to reprise his role as the brother of his villain Jean Vilain in a new installment of the franchise will not be realized.

Arnold Schwarzenegger has stated that he will not be returning. I’m out of it now that it’s finished. I told her, “Look, we did this, and I’m done with it.” He told Parade, “[Sylvester] Stallone really understood,” in an interview with FUBAR.

“I did [the first Expendables] as a favor to Sly. I shot it on a Saturday for two hours quickly in a church with Bruce Willis. Sly said, ‘Oh, can you do Expendables 2?’ and I did that for a weekend. Then it was expanded for Expendables 3. And that was it. We’re going to do something together one day.”
