X-Men stars Hugh Jackman and Patrick Stewart both earned a Guinness World Record for longest career as a live-action Marvel superhero. Jackman found out about the award while doing an interview on the British day time show, This Morning. He was presented with the award by Craig Glenday and was surprised to receive such an honor. Both Jackman and Stewart played the roles of Wolverine and Xavier over a course of several films for 16 years. From the first X-Men movie in 2000 to the Logan film that came out in 2017.
Jackman revealed that it’s always been a lifelong dream of his to make it into the world record book ever since he was a little kid. Stewart was shown congratulating Jackman and himself for their achievement in his own video message. The interview and videos can both be viewed on Patrick Stewart’s or Hugh Jackman’s Twitter account. Congrats to you both! You definitely have made an impact in the Marvel world and will have a long-lasting legacy because of your roles in the MCU. Thank you for being the best Wolverine and Xavier out there.
