Are Arnold Schwarzenneger and Jet Li's Characters In 'The Expendables 3' Gay?

The film's director even thinks so.

The Expendables 3

We've got to admit we didn't see this coming: Apparently, the summer movie more or less lowest on our to-see list features a gay couple, and they're played by Arnold Schwarzenneger and Jet Li!? It's almost enough to make us go see it, if only for the final scene that Buzzfeed has run down for us here -- and they sure do make a good case for Arnie & Jet's characters being a couple (warning -- there's spoilers, if you so care):

In the final scene of the film, the Expendables are at their favorite dive bar celebrating another successful mission of killing an endless parade of faceless bad guys. Lead Expendable Barney Ross (Stallone) approaches his old rival Trench (Arnold Schwarzenegger), who is commiserating with one of Ross’ former compatriots, Yin Yang (Jet Li), both of whom swooped in to help save Ross’ team in the climax of the movie.

“So, you’re working for Trench now?” Ross asks Yang, who responds by just shooting Trench a knowing look and a smile. As Ross turns to walk away, Trench and Yang lean in even closer to each other, grinning so widely, they almost start to giggle.

“You guys want to get a room?” asks Ross.

“We don’t need a room!” Trench says with a laugh. He pulls Yang in close, Yang rests his head on Trench’s chest, and the two of them laugh contentedly.

As Ross walks away, Trench exclaims, “So jealous!”

Perhaps they're reading too much into it? Well, not if the film's director has anything to say about it. In this interview on Grantland, Matt Patches asks the film's director straight out if Ross and Yang are a couple.

“I believe they are,” Hughes said in the interview, which adds that the director acted "like he just got away with something amazing" when he offered that response. Well, well...
