For now, the record of Stewart and Jackman will stay intact for a while, unless Robert Downey Jr. wishes to stay back as Iron Man for more years.

“When I saw Deadpool, I was like, wow that’s cool. It’s just a matter of time,” Jackman said when asked about playing Logan one more time. “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.”
