Hugh Jackman and Sir Patrick Stewart have both just set the record for longest career as a live-action Marvel superhero. Presented by the Guiness Book of Records on the British daytime television program This Morning, Jackman can be seen receiving the award while a special pre-recorded message from Sir Patrick Stewart is played. In the message, Stewart says, “Hi, Hugh my dear. I have discovered that you and I are now in the Guiness Book of Records. Congratulations, my friend. There’s another thing to hang on your wall.”

Both actors receive their awards from playing the characters Wolverine and Charles Xavier, spanning from the first X-Men film in the year 2000, until the 2017 film Logan. The total time amounts to 16 years and 228 days.

When asked if he would continue on as Wolverine, Jackman replied:

It’s a bit like you’re at the greatest party you’ve ever been at, you’ve been dancing for an hour and a half, and then you’re just like ‘It’s time, ok. If I stay any longer, it’s gonna get ugly.’ It’s like, it’s time.

The next closest actor to winning this award is Robert Downey Jr., as he is currently on his 11th year as playing Marvel’s Iron Man character. Watch the video below to see Hugh Jackman receive his Guiness Book of Records award from Patrick Stewart.

Welcome to the family, Hugh. Australian actor Hugh Jackman has received the record for the longest career as a live action Marvel superhero with his character Wolverine. He shares this record with fellow X-men star Sir Patrick Stewart (UK); both have had careers spanning 16 years 228 days. However, record-breaking was on Hugh’s mind long before he set his sights on Hollywood. He and his brother always wanted to end up in the book one day, and attempted records from most coins snatched off the elbow to longest marathon playing badminton. However, it seems he was meant to achieve record-breaking a little later in life! Hugh’s certificate was awarded to him by Craig Glenday, Editor-in-Chief of Guinness World Records, on @thismorning. “It was an honour to be able to finally hand over a certificate to Hugh and welcome him personally into the Guinness World Records family.” Click the link in our bio to read the full story. ______________________________________________________ #marvel #xmen #wolverine #hughjackman #guinnessworldrecords #officiallyamazing
