Among the major characters in the film, the one who got the most screen time in one of the biggest blockbusters of all time is Captain America played by actor Chris Evans. 

Captain America got one hour and six minutes of screen time in the three-hour-and-two-minute film, more than any other character in the movie, according to the Daily Mail.

The figure might surprise fans of the franchise because Captain America is a fan favorite in the MCU not to mention the fact that he’s known as the first Avenger thanks to 2011’s Captain America: First Avenger, Evans’s first foray into the MCU. 

However, Evans didn’t launch the franchise. That honor goes to Robert Downey Jr. who did so in 2008 when he took on the role of Tony Stark, the wealthy and witty character who became Iron Man. 

To be fair, both Captain America and Iron Man had a lot of scenes in Avengers: Endgame. Their time in the MCU had led up to this moment and — spoiler alert — the writers and producers needed to wrap up their storylines; death for Iron Man and a happy ending for Captain America. 

But don’t think the actors have hung up their red suit and shield just yet. There have been talks that the actors may reprise their roles in future films. 

Evans may play Captain America in a series on Disney’s streaming service, Disney+, all about his time spent living with Peggy Carter, according to We Got This Covered. There’s also talk fans may get questions answered about Captain America in future films by Marvel Studios. 

As for Iron Man, fans may not see more of Downey Jr.’s character but rather see another actor take on the role, possibly a younger character who takes over in the wake of his death, or something similar. But the 54-year-old actor has alluded to the fact he has no plans of suiting up as Iron Man again.
