New Images Show-Off Sweet MAX STEEL Costumes

Entertainment Weekly have gotten their hands on some new stills from Stewart Hendler's upcoming Max Steel live-action reboot. It stars Ben Winchell as Max McGrath.

Max Steel started as a Mattel action figure and then it later evolved into an animated series on Disney XD. Now the property is getting a live-action reboot from director Stewar Hendler ("Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn"). The script was written by Thor: The Dark World' scribe, Christopher Yost. The cast includes: Ben Winchell ("Necessary Roughness") as Max, Ana Villafañe ("Hiding") as Sofia Martinez, Maria Bello ("Coyote Ugly") as Max’s mom Molly McGrath, and Andy Garcia ("Ocean’s 11") as Dr. Miles Edwards.

Max Steel is an in-depth “origin” story packed with captivating characters and fast-paced action. The plot chronicles the adventures of Max McGrath and his mother have just moved back to Copper Canyon, the town in which Max’s scientist father died in a mysterious accident shortly after Max was born. As Max adjusts to his new school, things get complicated when his body starts to generate strange energy flare-ups that he can’t control.

At first a confusing mix of inconvenient and exhilarating, this unpredictable power eventually grows too intense for Max to handle, causing him to distance himself from those around him including the girl he likes, Sofia. Eventually the energy pushes him to the verge of fatal combustion. In the nick of time, a techno-organic extraterrestrial named Steel, who has been secretly monitoring Max’s progress, saves him just before he loses consciousness. The two discover that when joined together they can control the energy and harness it into superhuman strength – and that when apart, neither can survive for long.

As these two unlikely friends learn to accept their connected fates, they begin to uncover secrets surrounding the death of Max’s father. As they dig deeper, they soon find themselves hunted by an unforeseen enemy bent on capturing Max and Steel for a sinister agenda of destruction. Uncertain who to trust, they will have to work together to find the truth, and fight the mysterious forces threatening our world.

MrCBM56 - 7/24/2014, 8:48 AM
Looks cool
Doopie - 7/24/2014, 8:48 AM
I only have a vague recollection of the show...this is like Guyver right?

Looks to be quite derivative
PAF - 7/24/2014, 8:49 AM
I didn't even know they were making a film.
TheRationalNerd - 7/24/2014, 8:50 AM
Damnnnn I want that suit! Does it come in black?!
nibs - 7/24/2014, 8:52 AM
Haha that pic of him punching through the wall looks so bad lol. Hilarious phony facial expression, and his thumb is on the outside of his fist, which you cannot punch like that. I'm sure this movie will be a classic.
Doopie - 7/24/2014, 8:56 AM
reminds me of this

crossed with this...

with a dash of this

THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - 7/24/2014, 9:00 AM
Ugh, why base it off the new shit shit when you can base it on the original?
1ncredibleJ0C - 7/24/2014, 9:07 AM

NightForce - 7/24/2014, 9:08 AM
This reminds of that made for TV Ben 10 movie.
NightForce - 7/24/2014, 9:09 AM
That's NOT a good thing
Doopie - 7/24/2014, 9:09 AM
@Bl00dwerK - not a bad idea that. Think of what could have been done with TASM 2's marketing budget...
RangerStorm44 - 7/24/2014, 9:09 AM
@Doopie Oh god that suit is creepy
JoeMomma29 - 7/24/2014, 9:10 AM
Ohhhhhh it reminds me of this........

Doopie - 7/24/2014, 9:11 AM
That suit is creepy as [frick] I agree. I may be wrong but I think Star Kid may have done the 'inside the mask' thing before Iron Man
LordOfTheZegaRealm - 7/24/2014, 9:12 AM
I didn't even know a movie was being made. Suit looks cool though.
Vaportrail - 7/24/2014, 9:13 AM
When did "Film adaptation" become "Live action reboot"?
SpiderFraud - 7/24/2014, 9:16 AM
I would sell my soul for a Guyver remake.
TheBrownHornet - 7/24/2014, 9:20 AM
I use to watch the cartoon with my son. He'll like this.
slickrickdesigns - 7/24/2014, 9:56 AM
Looks like the total recall robots.
Marvelfreek94 - 7/24/2014, 9:58 AM
This sure isn't the Max Steel I grew up with. Early 2000 CG shows FTW!!!
Dedpool - 7/24/2014, 10:24 AM
@ Marvelfreek94 - Actually it's better. Better stories, and a more focussed world. I liked the original, along with Action Man. But this show is pretty cool. But I wish shows like Reboot, and Starship Troopers Chronicles, and War Planets would get a reboot.
pucrepeap - 7/24/2014, 10:43 AM
Cool suit.
Fun1gUy - 7/24/2014, 11:03 AM

Marxman12 - 7/24/2014, 1:14 PM
Looks cool. I'm picking up a Tron:Legacy vibe.
BabyGroot - 7/24/2014, 1:18 PM
I used to have early 2000 Max Steel toys when I was a kid. Definitely used to be a fan of the show. Very nostalgic reminder, hadn't heard of him in forever. Never knew they had a new series on Disney.
brokenexcitement - 7/24/2014, 2:26 PM
It reminds me of the video game Vanquish.

I have no idea who this is. I thought this was a remake of that Sci-fi channel movie. Why can't we just have another Guyver film? Seriously, A Guyver movie would rock!
