Hugh Jackman And Patrick Stewart Receive Guinness World Records For Their Time In The X-MEN Universe

The X-Men Universe as we know it ends this year when Marvel Studios regains the rights to the characters, but Hugh Jackman and Patrick Stewart have now received a Guinness World Record for their tenures.

Both Hugh Jackman and Patrick Stewart have retired from the world of the X-Men after starring in 2017's Logan, and their respective tenures (which began way back in 2000 with the release of X-Men) are now at an end. 

Now, their time with the franchise has been marked with a Guinness World Record for the "longest career as a live-action Marvel superhero," and while that definitely sounds like a category that's only been made up for next year's edition of the book, it's well-deserved as they did indeed play their respective characters for 16 years and 228 days in total. 


In fact, they're both so iconic as Wolverine and Professor X, it's damn near impossible to imagine how Marvel Studios will go about casting new actors in the roles (as good as James McAvoy has been as the younger Charles, it's doubtful he'll be as fondly remembered as Stewart).
