With The Wolverine & First Class 2 coming up, this would make the X-Men franchise the longest running comic book franchise in history?

Up to 7 movies with these two, I think the longest before was the original Superman franchise (1-4, Supergirl & Returns, 6 movies).
Actually, it's Batman. Counting LA movies only:

Movie/Lead Actor
The Batman 1943 Lewis Wilson
Batman 1966 Adam West
Batman 1989 MIchael Keaton
Batman returns 1992 Michael Keaton
Batman Forever 1995 Val Kilmer
Batman & Robin 1997 George Clooney
Batman Begins 2005 Christian Bale
The Dark Knight 2008 Christian Bale
But those do not share the same continuity...

You could always add GENERATION X to the X-film mix...

THE AVENGERS are close, and will surpass the X-Men next year.

But: Hugh Jackman is with his 5 (soon to become 6) Wolverine outings a recordholder. Robert Downey Jr. will be second by next year, when Iron Man III will be released having 5 films as Tony Stark.
