Stephen Dorff isn’t a fan of most movies these days, and he has a particular problem with a certain kind: the ones built around superheroes.

“If comic book movies were more like when I started when we did Swordor the few that have been decent over the years, like when [director Christopher] Nolan did it The dark knight and reinvented bat Man of Tim Burton, who is obviously a genius… when they were interesting, like when [director Stephen] norrington did it SwordY [director[ Guillermo [del Toro] I was fucking on it. But all this other crap is embarrassing, you know what I mean?” Dorff said. the daily beast in a story published Wednesday. “I mean, bless them, they’re making a lot of money, but their movies suck. And no one will remember them. No one will remember them.” black adam at the end of the day. I didn’t even see that movie, it looked so bad.”

black adam, based on a DC Comics character and starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, underperformed at the box office when it opened in October. Critics mocked it, too, and it has a score of 39%, based on almost 300 reviews, on rotten tomatoes.

Dorff also criticized Marvel’s remake of Sword, starring Oscar winner Mahershala Ali and scheduled for release in September 2024. Dorff said that it will not be better than the 1998 version in which he faced Wesley Snipes. That movie was directed by Stephen Norrington, who last directed another story adapted from the comics, The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen.

“Marvel is used to tearing them apart anyway. How so PG Sword movie for you, can’t that have a director?” he said before laughing. “Because anyone who goes there will laugh at everyone, because we already did it and we did it to the best of our ability. There’s no Steve Norrington out there.”

entertainment weekly reported in November that Yann Demange (lovecraft country) would direct Ali in the new Sword.

Dorff was at Sundance to promote his latest project, Divinity, a thriller co-starring Bella Thorne and Scott Bakula, directed by Eddie Alcazar. Dorff plays a character he described as “an Elon Musk with Asperger’s.”

“I think Divinity It should be bought by the big guys, and if the big guys were smart, if DC or any of these companies were doing cool stuff, they’d be looking for the next Eddie Alcazar, because that’s the future,” he said. “Not to do black adam and worthless junk over and over again.

In July 2021, the actor memorably said that he was “embarrassed“for Scarlett Johansson ahead of the release of her big-budget solo Marvel movie, black widowin 2021.

Dorff’s acting credits date back to the ’80s, on TV shows like The new leave it in the hands of Beaver, different hits Y Family ties, and include movies like Cecil B. Insane, Public Enemies Y Somewhere. He said that he would make mainstream movies all the time if they were good.

“I mean, the mainstream movies, the few movies that are opening in theaters that are doing well, like [sequels to] Avatar Y top weapon— I don’t even know what it all is. It’s all stupid to me,” he said. “I think film festivals are kind of silly in a way, except that it brings filmmakers and people together and gets the audience to see your movie and you can release it and sell it there. But generally, most movies are sold to streamers anyway, so it’s not really cinema.”

He described the movies of 2022 as “horrifying” and that being an actor is more difficult today because the filmmakers are less interesting.
