Breaking down ‘The Avengers’ by screen time

The good people over at the pop culture website Vulture counted up how much screen time each of the Avengers got in the new movie.

Captain America and Iron Man came in at one and two. Black Widow, that’s Scarlett Johansson to those not familiar, was third.

The Hulk was 5th — that’s the screen time of Bruce Banner and The Hulk combined, by the way.

And I’d just like to say, speaking for Norwegians everywhere, that Thor totally got the short straw: a lousy 14 minutes of screen time.
