New Stills from the Live-Action MAX STEEL

Earlier this month, we got our first look at Disney XD star Ben Winchell as Max McGrath from Max Steel, and now Open Road Films unveiled more photos from the upcoming live-action movie based on the toy and animated series of the same name.

The action figure-turned-animated series hero has a “Friday Night Lights-meets-Marvel vibe and is very much designed to be grounded within the teen experience,” said director Stewart Hendle.

Penned by Marvel Studios vet Christopher Yost (Thor: The Dark World), the super-teen epic follows 16-year-old Max who has hidden powers that when combined with alien companion, Steel, produce ‘the universe’s most powerful energy.’

Didn’t know a badly computer animated cartoon was a big enough thing to justify a movie 10-15 years later.

Andy Garcia, Maria Bello and Ana Villafañe also stars in the film, which is planned to hit theaters on an as-of-yet-unspecified date in 2015.

Check out all-new images in addition to some concept art of the lead character’s full costume.
