Hugh Jackman now ties with Christopher Reeve, as both played

Hugh Jackman now ties with Christopher Reeve, as both played a comic book hero in four consecutive films over nine years.

Come to think of it, James Franco and Ian McKellan now tie with Gene Hackman, as all have played comic book foes in three films. However, I should note that Hackman filmed all of his scenes for Superman II concurrently for the making of Superman-The Movie (Hackman actually briefly retired in the early 1980's). Hackman did not play Luthor in Superman III, so he did not make three consecutive appearances as Luthor.

But Franco didn't play a villain in parts 1 or 2, technically. And Magneto wasn't exactly a bad guy in X2 if I recall.

Well, he did try to make Xavier kill all humans...
