If you had doubts as to Sylvester Stallone‘s God Complex, let them now be cast aside. In a hilariously tasteless move, the PR department behind The Expendables 2has released a poster that depicts the huge cast in a parody of Da Vinci’s masterpiece The Last Supper.
In short, the poster is, of course, ridiculous: If anyone on it was going to be Jesus, surely it would be Arny…
As far as symbolism goes, it hardly takes a new Da Vinci Code to get the little reference that is Dolph Lundgren (who betrayed the team in the first film) in Judas’s seat. The seats of the rest of the cast may hint to plot details, but really, who can concentrate on plot-twists and symbolism when they’re looking at Sylvester Stallone bathed in heavenly light.
Now all we need is a special guest appearance by God.
In the name of Stallone, and of Statham, and of Van Damme. Amen.
