Marvel Studios recently premiered the 24th film in its long-running Marvel Cinematic Universe, Black Widow. While the movie looks like a decent time for Marvel fans who are interested in learning more about the titular character and core member of the Avengers team played by actress Scarlett Johansson, it’s already beginning to receive some major criticism from figures in the industry. One of those is actor Stephen Dorff, who told UK publication The Independent in an interview published today that Black Widow looked “like garbage.” Comparing it to a “bad video game,” Dorff went on to say that he was embarrassed for Johansson (despite her lucrative earnings) and everyone involved in the movie, and that he had zero interest in being a part of such films. Stephen Dorff is best known for playing vampire villain Deacon Frost in New Line Cinema’s 1998 adaption of Blade, which is being rebooted by Marvel Studios with actor Mahershala Ali in the titular role.

“I still hunt out the good sh*t because I don’t want to be in Black Widow,” Dorff said in the interview. “It looks like garbage to me. It looks like a bad video game. I’m embarrassed for those people. I’m embarrassed for Scarlett! I’m sure she got paid five, seven million bucks, but I’m embarrassed for her. I don’t want to be in those movies. I really don’t. I’ll find that kid director that’s gonna be the next Kubrick and I’ll act for him instead.”
