Expendables 2 trailer declares war on superhero movies

“Not tights. Not shields. Nor lanterns.” It's The Expendables inviting you to "man up"...

We like this. You might recall that before the release of the first Expendables movie, there was a terrific fan-made trailer, urging people to go and see the film over Eat Pray Love, which came out the same day.

This time, a new fan trailer has declared war on the swathe of superhero movies that have invaded the box office. It invites you to “man up”, and enjoy the old fashioned spectacle of men with “big fucking guns”.

The Expendables 2 is out in August. This might not be an official trailer, but we suspect Lionsgate won’t be looking to get it taken down anytime soon….
