The first images from the action figure adaptation Max Steel
Unbeknownst to me, MAX STEEL is a line of action figures that have been produced by Mattel since 1997. Not only that, there has been two animated TV series’ based on the figure that the kids seem to enjoy. Now a science-fiction action adventure film directed by Stewart Hendler and written by Christopher Yost (THOR: THE DARK WORLD) is on the way next year and we have the first images to show you.
First up, the synopsis:
Max Steel is an origin story that will chronicle the adventures of 16-year old Max McGrath and alien companion Steel, who must harness and combine their tremendous new powers to evolve into the turbo-charged superhero Max Steel. As these two unlikely friends struggle to accept their oddly connected fates, they begin to uncover unimaginable secrets, working together to find the truth, and fighting the mysterious forces threatening their world.
Disney XD star Ben Winchell stars as Max Steel, Andy Garcia is the mysterious Dr. Miles Edwards, Maria Bello plays Max’s mom, and Ana Villafañe looks to give him the feels as some form of love interest. I’m always up for a new superhero movie; the trailer will say more about the images released though, so we await that now. I’m intrigued still, maybe it can offer something different than what we have been seeing over the past few years which is mainly just dark grim shit.
What do you guys know about MAX STEEL and are you looking forward to the big screen change?
