Open Road Films has released the first batch of photos from their upcoming live action adaptation of Max Steel, and they give us our first look at Disney star Ben Winchell as the main character. That suit he's wearing in the photo above is pretty cool. It looks like he's about ready to go ballistic on someone.
I was never really into Max Steel, but it does sound look and sound like it has potential to be a cool flick that fans of the animated series and toy line would enjoy. Here's a brief synopsis:
"The origins story chronicles the adventures of 16-year-old Max McGrath (Winchell) and alien companion Steel, who must harness and combine their tremendous new powers to evolve into the 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."
The movie also co-stars Ana Villafane, Andy Garcia, and Maria Bello, and it was written by Christopher Yost (Thor: The Dark World). Everyone involved with the film will be at Comic-Con later this month, and I'm sure they'll premiere some footage.
