Stephen Dorff isn't holding back his views of Marvel's latest superhero flick Black Widow. The actor, who played villain Deacon Frost in 1998's Blade, unleashed on the Scarlett Johansson-starring film.

"I still hunt out the good shit because I don't want to be in Black Widow," he told The Independent in an interview published on Monday. "It looks like garbage to me. It looks like a bad video game. I'm embarrassed for those people."

"I'm embarrassed for Scarlett!" he continued. "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."

The 47-year-old is best known for starring in S.F.W. (1994), Cecil B Demented (2000), Sofia Coppola's Somewhere (2010) and season 3 of HBO's True Detective (2019). His most recent project is Embattled, a sport drama about an MMA fighter.

Marvel fans aren't over the moon about the review.

Black Widow, focused on the origins of super spy Natasha Romanoff, arrives in theaters and on Disney Plus in the US on July 9.
