You're making it sound like he's just starting out in Hollywood. He's come back for six of these movies already. He's got an Oscar nomination, he's won an Emmy, a Golden Globe, and two Tony Awards. He's been the star of a billion-dollar superhero franchise for the last thirteen years, and he's broken house records on Broadway.

I think it's pretty well established at this point that the industry likes him well enough that he doesn't need to sign an absurd (rumored) $100 million deal to do four more of these movies just to prove it.

He gave a great answer. He was basically saying that if that deal was true and if he took it, it would look like he was only taking it because they were throwing tons of money at him to do it. He said he's always done them because there was a reason why he wanted to and because he thought it was something the fans wanted to see. If he's going to keep doing them, he wants that to still be the reason why.

You can't think that Wolverine should be the main focus of the rest of his career. That's crazy.

”We live in times when hate and fear seem stronger. We rise and fall, and light from dying embers: remembrances that hope and love last longer. And love is love is love is love is love is love is love cannot be killed or swept aside."
