Max Steel is back. Having started off as a Mattel toy line in the ’90s, it’s already transferred to the screen as three different animated series – Max Steel (2000), Max Steel Turbo Missions (2008) and Max Steel (2013). Now here comes the live-action big screen version, which is an origin story for the Max and his alien buddy steel who combine to become the supercharged superhero Max Steel.
Max Steel stars Ben Winchell (nothing you’ve heard of) as Max McGrath and Ana Villafañe (Grand Theft Auto V) as Sofia Martinez . It’s written by Christopher Yost (Thor: The Dark World) and directed by Stewart Hendler (Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn). There’s no confirmed UK release date as yet.
