“Oh, yeah. I think so. I’m 68 and a half. 69 this year. There’s a couple more I’m going to do this year — hopefully, COVID allowing us — there’s a couple in the pipeline and, then I think that will probably be it. Well, unless I’m on a Zimmer frame or something,” he explained during the interview.

“I love doing ‘em. I love beating up guys half my age,” he added, going on to talk about an experience on the set of upcoming film Blacklight.

“I’ve just finished one in Australia and I had a fight scene with a kid — lovely, sweet actor called Taylor — and halfway through the fight I looked up, I was breathless and it didn’t cost him a cent, and I said, ‘Taylor, what age are you?’ He said, ’25.’ I said, ‘That’s the age of my eldest son!’”

He previously said he’s done with superhero movies as well, although fans are campaigning for him to play Zeus from Clash of the Titans in Wonder Woman 3.

“I guess so, sure. I mean, I’m very flattered! I wasn’t aware that the ancient Greek gods appeared in Wonder Woman. I have to say, much to my chagrin, I haven’t seen kind of the Wonder Woman movies…I’ll call my agent!” he said.
