Patrick Stewart and Hugh Jackman set world record with Marvel roles

Writer: Florey DM


These two literally aged with their characters.

22 Feb - Patrick Stewart and Hugh Jackman's names are pretty much synonym with X-Men and just recently, the two set a world record with their respective Marvel superhero roles.

Both actors were certified by Guinness World Records as having "The longest career as a live action Marvel superhero".

Since their debut in 2000's "X-Men", Stewart has been starring as Professor X and Jackman as Wolverine for 16 years 228 days.

Jackman received the certificate from Craig Glenday, Editor-in-Chief of Guinness World Records, during a surprise presentation on ITV's "This Morning". Stewart appeared in a video message on the UK TV show, saying, "I have discovered that you and I are now in the Guinness Book of Records, congratulations my friend, there's another thing to hang on to a wall."

Together, the two actors have appeared in seven Marvel's X-Men movies, namely "Logan", "X-Men: Days of Future Past", "The Wolverine", "X-Men Origins: Wolverine", "X-Men: The Last Stand", "X2" and "X-Men" (though in some Stewart only appeared in cameo roles).

Both Stewart and Jackman have retired from their X-Men roles, playing them for one last time in 2017's "Logan".

Stewart can be seen playing John Bosley next in this year's "Charlie's Angels" while Jackman lends his voice to the main character in animated film "Missing Link", also releasing this year.
