Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jet Li Are a Couple in 'Expendables 3'
Action movies of yesteryear were aggressively straight, even if they sometimes don't seem that way in retrospect. And those are the movies the Expendables franchise shamelessly imitates in loving homage. So one moment in the latest installment caught us off guard. Minor Spoilers Ahead!
When the gang all gets together for a celebratory night at the bar at the end of the movie, Arnold Schwarzenegger's character (Trench) and Jet Li's (Yin) are leaning into each other while they drink. Sylvester Stallone quips, "Get a room you two!" as he walks by. The two laugh it off and kind of cuddle, and when I first saw it I wasn't sure if they were supposed to be joking around or if they were really into each other. In a new interview with Grantland, director Patrick Hughes reveals it's apparently the latter.
From Grantland: "Did the former-Governator just silently flip off Prop 8? Are two of the Expendables together by the end of the movie? 'I believe they are,' Hughes says, like he just got away with something amazing."
