We questioned at first whether Alexa Vega could handle a role in Robert Rodriguez's 'Machete Kills,' especially when that said role answers to the name of Killjoy. 'Spy Kids' doesn't exactly qualify as action movie experience, but as Miley Cyrus and Lindsay Lohan remind us with their daily shenanigans, everyone has to grow up at some point... And boy, Vega did indeed grow up. We've got the official debut pic of her in 'Machete Kills.'

That first pic of Vega in her 'Machete Kills' lingerie she tweeted out a few months ago doesn't quite do the now 23-year-old actress justice. She's since followed that one up by tweeting out her debut photo from the film, complete with bedazzled bikini top. Major cleavage and revealing bottoms aside, though, do you think she's finally kicked the 'Spy Kids' image? We certainly do.

'Machete Kills' will also feature fellow bombshells Jessica AlbaAmber Heard, Vanessa Hudgens, Sofia Vergara, Lady Gaga and Michelle Rodriguez, along with gents Mel Gibson, Danny Trejo and Damien Bachir. The official plot reads as follows: "Danny Trejo returns as ex-Federale agent MACHETE, who is recruited by the President of the United States for a mission which would be impossible for any mortal man – he must take down a madman revolutionary and an eccentric billionaire arms dealer who has hatched a plan to spread war and anarchy across the planet."

Do you think, by this photo, that Alexa Vega has what it takes to follow in the footsteps of the action movie babes of the past? Let us know what you think of her new look in the comments!
