AceShowbiz - Stephen Dorff has labelled the latest batch of superhero movies "embarrassing garbage" that "nobody will remember." An outspoken critic of comic book films that have swept into cinemas in recent years, the actor has insisted the majority are not as good as previous big screen efforts like his 1998 Marvel movie "Blade" and he now takes aim at recent offerings like Dwayne Johnson's version of DC Comics character "Black Adam".
"If comic-book movies were more like when I started when we made 'Blade', or the few that have been decent over the years, like when [Christopher] Nolan did 'The Dark Knight' and reinvented 'Batman' from Tim Burton, who's obviously a genius … when they were interesting ...," Dorff said in an interview with The Daily Beast. "But all this other garbage is just embarrassing, you know what I mean?"
Dorff went on to insist that he understands big budget superhero blockbusters make a lot of money, but can't see the value in them. He added, "I mean, God bless them, they're making a bunch of money, but their movies suck. And nobody's going to remember them. Nobody's remembering 'Black Adam' at the end of the day. I didn't even see that movie, it looked so bad."
Dorff previously vented his fury at Scarlett Johansson's Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) film "Black Widow" - declaring he felt "embarrassed" for her. However, he later had a change of heart and sent her a note of apology.
He told TMZ.com, "I think that was a little bit out of context. I love Scarlett. [She's] a great actress ... She's an old friend of mine, so I felt bad about that comment ... I sent her a little note ... I'm sure she's been in a similar situation... I was just s*** talking a little bit and I feel bad."
