Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame was a wild ride that put a lot of people in a glass box of human emotions. The plot of two films was a culmination over a decade of build-up with the big baddy, Thanos, being the focus of Infinity War and the heroes of the MCU play catch in Endgame play catch up. Both films featured a huge collection of characters from Marvel Studios 20 movies and might lead some people thinking who had the most screen time.
Someone took on the mission of finding that out and now curious minds can know.
Robert Downey Jr. who played Tony Stark became the leader of the MCU. It was a huge gamble for Marvel Studios to place their bets on the actor, but it paid off in a big way. The character would find himself in post-credit scenes or as a secondary character that helped drive the plot of the movie.
It would only seem fitting that Tony Stark would be the top spot on most screen time featured in Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame combined.
Shinya Kogami studied of the 2-part movies and tabulated how many seconds each major character earned. Stark was calculated to have a tally of 3,001 seconds, which is roughly 50 minutes, while Thanos only earned 2,272 seconds, about 38 minutes.
If one would take Infinity War alone, Thanos comes out on top with 25 minutes of screen time, Gamora comes in second with 17 minutes, and Tony drops to third with 16 minutes. Seem like Endgame was more of Stark’s story that time around.
YouTube video yourself of Kogmai’s study:
Kogami had hopes that the data would show that Stark’s amount of screen time would end up at 3000—you already know why—but that, unfortunately, didn’t happen. Here’s what Kogami had to say to that idea in the video’s description:
“I wanted to manipulate the data to show 3000 but that would be not the right thing to do, so I have left it as it is.”
