Oscar-winning actress and director Jodie Foster reportedly zapped superhero movies as the film equivalent of fracking, saying “it’s ruining the viewing habits” of movie viewers around the globe.

In an interview with Radio Times, Foster complained “going to movies has become like a theme park,” the U.K.-based Daily Mail reported Sunday.

“Studios making bad content in order to appeal to the masses and shareholders is like fracking — you get the best return right now but you wreck the earth,” she said, the Mail reported. “It’s ruining the viewing habits of the American population and then ultimately the rest of the world.”

Foster said she doesn’t want to make “$200m movies about superheroes,” but would consider a superhero protagonist if they had “really complex psychology,” the Mail exported.

Foster, who directs an episode of the latest season of Netflix's sci-fi drama “Black Mirror,” said creator Charlie Brooker was her favorite to date because he isn’t “bossy.”

“This sounds crazy but of all the things I’ve done as a director, I’ve never had as nice a collaboration with a producer as this one,' she said, the Mail reported. “It may be the English thing. I like the way Charlie says, ‘It might be nice if…’ or ‘Perhaps we could…’

“We’re having a conversation, as opposed to somebody being bossy,” she said, noting that in Hollywood, there’s a “lack of respect” for directors unless you’re “untouchable” like Steven Spielberg or Clint Eastwood.
