Avengers: Endgame opens tomorrow and it’s got to be on your list of must see movies. And trust me, you want to see it in the theater for the full experience. But if you are like me and know sitting for 3 hours straight without a bathroom break is almost impossible, I’ve got Endgame Survival Tips for you. Here are my non-spoiler suggestions on when you can make a break to hit the bathroom- look, you gotta know when you can pee at Avengers: Endgame, amirite?
Hi, I’m Patty and I have the smallest bladder on the planet. My special skills include knowing where the closest bathrooms are on a runDisney race course and at pretty much at any theme park you want to visit.
But apparently, Marvel doesn’t take my 5 pregnancies and weak bladder into consideration when they make their movies.
If you’re like me, this is possibly THE MOST IMPORT ENDGAME AVENGERS POST EVER.
And you are welcome.
Avengers: Endgame Survival Tips (ie, When Can You Pee?)
I know I covered this in my rules for watching Avengers: Endgame with me, but… let’s be real.
When you gotta go, you gotta go. And I feel like there’s a point or two in the movie that you might be able to run to the bathroom for a break.
BTW: I have to brag on myself a little here. When I attended the Avengers: Endgame red carpet premiere, I was solid and made it through the whole movie. Huzzah! Weird brag, I know, but if you know me, you know this is pretty much winning everything.
Please note: I share this information to help you be more comfortable for what’s to come toward the end of the movie- it’s critical that you don’t leave your seat for any reason after about the 1-hour mark. Also, please make sure you have checked this list of Marvel movies out before you go; there’s a lot of references to the old movies. Consider this a bonus tip!
Tip #1: Do Whatever It Takes- To Hold It.
If Cap can hold a helicopter, you can probably make it the three hours runtime.
You really DO NOT want to miss a second of this movie- and if you want to know why, I’ve got a few non-spoiler reviews for you to consider. My Avengers: Endgame parent movie review as well as a general Avengers: Endgame review – both are 100% spoiler free, by the way.
So try really hard not to make Cap cry by leaving the movie.
Tip #2: Sit Near the Aisle If This Is An Issue For You.
But you probably know this tip and have been incorporating it in your movie-going life for years. But thought I’d remind you to choose wisely so you can be quick!
Tip #3: The First Half of the Movie is the Best Bet to Dash Out.
I’d say your first chance to run to the bathroom during Avengers: Endgame is when you see Ant-Man enter the picture. I’m not giving details here on what’s happening here because I really want this movie to be spoiler-free for you, but it’s probably 25-30 minutes into the movie.
So if the first scenes got you worked up and your kidneys got that shot of adrenaline and kicked things into overdrive: go here and be quick about it! I’d say you have a 2-minute window.
Tip #4: Go When You First Meet The Hulk In Avengers: Endgame
Banner is in the movie from the beginning, but Hulk shows up a bit later. There’s a scene with him eating lunch, and you don’t want to miss it because it’s funny.
But if you laugh and that makes you pee a little… well, go ahead and make your exit here.
He’s going to understand if you gotta head out- but get back quickly because the movie really takes off after this.
Tip #5: New Asgard
Your last chance is probably as a few of the crew rolls into New Asgard. But this is honestly my last choice to make a run to the restroom- so try to avoid leaving at this point.
I suggest this timing because the scene is interesting (and frankly funny as hell)- and possibly setting up some action for the next phases in the Marvel movie lineup– but it’s not essential to the plot as far as Endgame is concerned.
Go early when you see this happening- the farther into the scene you get, the more you’ll regret missing what exactly happened when you come back.
Tip #6: Pee Fast- And Wash Your Hands.
I mean… we’re all in a rush to get back to the movie but never too much of a rush to skip hygiene, amirite?
Yup, you’ve been mom’ed. Sorry, not sorry.
