Taylor Lautner the Next Super Hero Max Steel?
I knew it!!! I had a big hunch that Taylor Lautner was in talks to star in an action super hero movie!!! I never wrote about it, just in case I was completely wrong and I didn't want to start any rumors.
Lautner would play Josh McGrath, a 19-year-old extreme-sports athlete who is accidentally exposed to the unleashed power of nanotechological machines, which become part of him and (in the old show, at least) give him increased strength, near-invulnerability and the ability to change his appearance.
"Steel" was a Mattel line back in 2001 that raked in $100 million worldwide and spawned an animated series that lasted three season.
You might be wondering how I knew something like this was going to happen. Well, here's how I came to my conclusion.
- Taylor was recently spotted leaving Xtreme Martial Arts (XMA), owned by his former martial arts coach Mike Chat
- He's been photographed wearing a red XMA baseball cap a couple of times, and he normally doesn't wear hats.
- The boy is super athletic and there are so many pics and video of him flipping, jumping and showing off his moves. Movie execs will take notice of that.
- In a recent interview, Tay hinted about an upcoming project that he's very excited about. I assumed that a big project was in the works.
- He's talented, athletic, handsome and his career is on fire right now. Perfect for a super hero role!
