Maximilian "Max" Tatum is a movie director.
Tatum was in production of a movie when he was approached by Trish Walker, whom asked to speak with him privately. After hours of work, he spoke with her in his trailer, in which Walker attempted to request that he gave her access to records at Metro-General Hospital; rejecting to do so, Tatum was threatened by Walker to go public about the assaults committed when she was a young actress, given 48 hours to comply. He chugs a glass of an alcoholic beverage before storming out of his trailer.

Leaving off the site, Tatum had encountered Trish Walker and Jessica Jones, Walker informing him that time was up. He expressed his anger in showing his lead actress the video of their conversation three days ago and quickly dismissed the publicity of his confession. Gradually, Tatum was threatened by Jones, whom shoved him and held him against the hood of his car. When Jones implied that he had assaulted other young actresses, Tatum admitted that he had not and was in love with Walker.
