While Hugh Jackman (Wolverine) and Patrick Stewart (Professor X) both retired as Marvel characters, but they played their characters long enough to earn a spot at Guinness World Records because of their longest career as a Marvel superhero.
Both actors appeared in the first X Men movie in 2000 and the last movie that they did was Logan in 2017. Their presence in the X-Men franchise under the names of Wolverine and Charles Xavier extends over 16 years and 228 days.
Guinness World Records announced the new record and awarded Jackman and Stewart rewards for their role as superheroes on The morning show. You can watch the video below and, as you will see, Jackman is very upset. Patrick Stewart joins by videoconference. Check it out!
