'Avengers: Endgame' Has A Few Good Bathroom Break Spots
Because when a movie is over three hours long, you're gonna have to go.
Movies like Avengers: Endgame are pretty much review-proof. No matter what the critics think, people are going to see it. Hell, most of them already had their tickets weeks before the film was even previewed for reviewers. The Marvel reputation coupled with the 21-film investment that fans have already made into the franchise has guaranteed a huge opening weekend regardless of what the reviews say (even though, yes, FilmFracture will have one up soon).
What people really want to know about Avengers: Endgame is, at just a hair over three hours long, where are the bathroom breaks? Well, the short answer is, hold it if you can. There are very few (if any) wasted scenes in the movie, so sticking it out is worth it. But, if your half-beer bladder simply can’t go the distance (and Marvel didn’t pull a The Hateful Eight by tossing in that rumored intermission), here are a few places where you may not miss too much by popping out and hitting the potty.
Of course, these descriptions will try to be as vague as possible, but some of them may be minor spoilers. But if you have to go, you’re gonna want to know.
Avengers: Endgame Bathroom Breaks
0:42 – The first good potty break comes at about 42 minutes into the movie. It’s a conversation between Tony Stark and Pepper Potts. Sure, it’s all emotional exposition, but it’s nothing that hasn’t been explained before or won’t be made clear later. If you hit that extra-large soda a bit too early, you’re safe to duck out for a minute for an Endgame bathroom break.
1:30 – The next good pee time comes at about the halfway point of the movie. Here’s where that minor spoiler comes in – it’s a conversation between Thor and his Mom. Again, it’s emotional, but you’re cool to answer nature’s call without missing a beat.
2:15 – Finally, there’s a couple of minutes at about the two hour and fifteen minute mark where good old Thanos gives one of those highly philosophical speeches right before a fight. He’s a pretty long-winded villain, and it’s nothing that he hasn’t said before, so the coast is clear to take a tinkle. But hurry back from this Avengers: Endgame bathroom break because you don’t want to miss a single second of the epic battle that comes next.
Oh, and the whole last twenty minutes or so is all epilogue – fun stuff, and lots of character and series tie-ups, but you can step out and relieve yourself for a minute without missing too much. If you’ve held it that long, you’ve earned it.
So, as you can see, there’s not much filler in Avengers: Endgame. It’s not wall-to-wall action, but the story moves at a brisk pace and information is tossed at the viewer at a pretty good clip. Again, hold your water if you can. But if you can’t, take an aisle seat and remember these times are the best to grab an Endgame bathroom break. You can maximize your viewing pleasure without rupturing your kidneys.
