– You also just announced that you will part ways with the role of `Wolverine` after the third solo film in 2017. What led you to that decision?

– I don’t want to call it `quitting a role` but just liken it to a party that eventually has to end to make room for other parties.

Wolverine is an immortal character who never ages in movies.
