Hugh Jackman joined the ranks of the Guinness Book of World Records. Guinness posted on Twitter a photo of Jackman receiving a framed award stating that he had broken a record thanks to his portrayal of Wolverine in X Men movies.
Jackman was not the only one to have received this award, since he shared it with his former co-star, Patrick Stewart. The two men share the record for the longest representation of a Marvel superhero, with 16 years and 228 days at the time of the announcement.

The two actors made their debut in Marvel X Men (2000) and then appeared together in Logan (2017), the film that will probably be the last appearance of the two men in the X Men franchise.
"When I was a kid, the Guinness Book of Records was that," Jackman said while receiving his award. He said that he had first tried to figure in the book by trying to snatch as many pieces as he could when he was 10 years old. Then he and his brother tried to beat the badminton record non-stop (25 hours). Although he failed both attempts, he finally succeeded in the film industry.
"That's it, I did it," says Jackman. "That's why I got into the showbiz, thanks."
Obviously, it does not seem like Jackman is coming back in the role of Wolverine with Disney's upcoming acquisition of Fox. Kevin Feige has already announced that he would look for himself a new actor at Wolverine, which means that the record is set and that it's time that someone again tries to break the mark.
