For years a Max Steel movie has been talked about. But now, excitingly, we get our first glimpse of the newest toyline to film experiment. Let's hope this is better than Battleship! *Shivers* - Wow that movie was terrible!
With Christopher Yost at the helm – who wrote both Thor: The Dark World and the animated TV series Avengers Earth's Mightiest Heroes – perhaps the film has the right foundation for success. If this new batch of images are anything to go by, the movie could be awesome! The pictures show Ben Winchell as Max McGrath, and highlight his transformation into superhero Max Steel with assistance from his alien companion Steel. See what you think...
Using story elements from the initial animated TV series from 2013, the movie will see Max team up with Steel, his robot alien friend, who allows him to control a force called TURBO Energy. Using this special ability, Max transforms into the superhero Max Steel.
In my opinion Ben Winchell looks great as Max himself. Maybe a little too Andrew Garfield-ish with the hair and clothes, but hey... it seems to work! Maria Bello will play Max's mother; Ana Villafañe will play as Sofia Martinez.
The suit looks pretty cool I think. I'm really looking forward to this, and especially to seeing if they can adapt a toy into a movie without Bay-ifying it!
[Max Steel](movie:1074809) is coming to theaters in the Fall of 2015.
