Stephen Dorff, Star of “Blade”, Calls “Black Widow” Embarrassing for Scarlett Johansson

In a recent interview with Independent, Stephen Dorff, most famous for his role of the villain Deacon Frost in Blade, criticized the modern film industry, particularly modern superhero movies including Marvel’s Black Widow.

“I still hunt out the good s**t because I don’t want to be in Black Widow,” Dorff said. “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 [Stanley] Kubrick and I’ll act for him instead.”

The much-anticipated Black Widow film is hitting theaters and Disney+ Premier Access on July 9, 2021, after being delayed more than a year due to COVID-19. It will be the 24th film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the first film in the franchise’s “Phase Four”, with 10 more films on the schedule. The franchise launched with Iron Man in 2008, significantly changing the landscape for superhero films a decade after Dorff’s Blade, which kickstarted Marvel’s success in film.

A reboot of Blade starring Mahershala Ali has been announced for the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

He’s not wrong.

Though from what I know of him he pretty much passed up super stardom because he doesn’t want that life. It’s not for him. Maybe it is for her?

Regardless, i won’t wash this Disney trash and you shouldn’t either. All they do is shove their “woke” pandering BS down our throats and then suck the CCP’s di…. to get those dollars from China by any means necessary (Not recognizing Taiwan as a country, suppressing black people on their movie posters, etc etc).

He forgets that nobody wants to be the next Kubrick or Scorsese. They all want to be the next Kevin Fiege who is singlehandedly responsible for the survival of Movie theaters in this day & age of Streaming Netflix, Amazon prime. People love & Crave these action packed MCU movies & pack the theaters. If the Kubrick movies are released today they would surely bomb at the box office & no one would really care for them. even the critics have planted their flag in MCU camp, & praising them left & right.

Sounds like Mr. Dorff is a little envious that Scarlett can carry a Marvel movie and no one knows who the heck he is. She earned every penny they paid her.
Cut the bs Stephen.

Gotta disagree with Dorff, it was much better then I expected! Lots of action. Not as good as a standard Marvel movie but don’t think it had anything to do with Disney’s agenda or that the lead was a women. Thought cast did a great job.
