Veteran filmmaker Martin Scorsese has hinted that his recent film 'The Irishman' might just be his last film. "I`m 77 and I`ve got things to do... I don`t know how many more I can make -- maybe this is it. The last one," the filmmaker told The Guardian in a recent interview.

Scorsese who is widely regarded as a great contributor to the Hollywood film industry took a dig at the fascination among the crowds for super-hero films.

"We are in a situation now where the theatres are only showing the latest superhero films. You have 12 screens -- and 11 are a superhero film. You enjoy superhero films, fine, but you need 11 screens?" he asked.
