Or it surprising didn't come up in the script. Stallone is kind of the central character, so yeah, he's going to take down the big bad (again). But even a brief brawl would've been a nice nod to when these guys were first popularized.
Stallone's in his sixties. And Norris is an in-shape butt-kicking 73. Plus he's one of what, three legit martial arts terrors they've cast in the two extant movies? Along with Cotoure and Lundgren? Counting only the guys who fought legit of course, not the Lee types who were great movie fighters. Though didn't Rourke box?
On another note, what's Fred Ward doing these days? He'd be great for this...
As would Eastwood, in a non running and jumping role.
And man, they've GOT to put Chiba in this, in some sort of role.
