I believe that the more appropriate translation would be: "There are three more to come" though I wrote the answer they suggested.

I think you might be confusing "Sie stehen vor uns" with "Sie stehen uns bevor".

why is it not 'es steht'?

I think it's the same principle as "Das sind" for these/those are, the neutral pronoun becoming a plural one. Just an educated guess, mind you.
