Stephen Dorff wants you to know that he really, really does not want a part in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The actor, perhaps best known for his role in Blade, has been reported saying he's actually embarrassed for actress Scarlett Johansson for working on Black Widow and that Hollywood work now, is often too safe for him to engage with.
In an interview with The Independent, the 47-year-old actor - who portrayed vampire Deacon Frost in the 1998 film Blade (which is based on the Marvel anti-hero) - seems to think that the MCU is now "garbage". He is uninterested in the action films Hollywood is producing, and would rather look for the "next Kubrick" and "act for him instead".
Here is the latest trailer for the brand-new Marvel movie, Black Widow...
When talking to The Independent, he says: "I still hunt out the good s**t because I don't want to be in Black Widow. 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."
Dorff believes that Hollywood's productions are now too safe, and doesn't include many films he's interested in - but he will engage with some projects here and there so he can enjoy other parts of his life. "I don't like playing things too safe. To me, Hollywood's always too safe. When I've needed money, sure, I've done a couple of weeks on a movie that I didn't wanna do. See, I like money too, because I like to buy things and I like art and real estate."
The actor has been working on other projects since his stint as a vampire in Blade, like the 2020 MMA film Embattled and 2017's continuation of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre series, Leatherface. Seems safe to say, though, that we won't be seeing him in a Marvel film any time soon.
