Your Spoiler-Free Guide to When to Pee During Avengers: Endgame

You have a limited window, so be smart!

Megan Vick

So you're going to see Avengers: Endgame. Either you're a die-hard superhero fan and you're trying to prep ahead of time for the three-hour saga, or perhaps you're someone who is being dragged to the theater and just found out that this thing is only 13 minutes shorter than Titanic. Either way, welcome to your guide to when to relieve yourself during all the action.

First of all, if you're reading this in advance of going, limit your liquid intake 12 hours prior to your screening and stop drinking all together at least two hours before the movie. Trust me, this works. However, if you find yourself in the latter camp and can't avoid going to the restroom, here's when it's safe to go.

In the beginning:

If you feel the need to panic pee at the top of the film, go at the start of the second scene of the film. You have roughly 10 minutes here that deals with how everyone is doing after the Thanos (Josh Brolin) snap, as you probably gleamed from the trailer. You have about six minutes before you need to be back in your seat for an Important Event, so pee fast.

After Important Event No. 1:

To be as vague as possible, when the team starts talking about quantum physics, you can skip the math lesson and hit the bathroom. You will miss some solid jokes, but nothing crucial to the understanding of the rest of the film. This is the longest time frame you have -- about 12 minutes -- so aim for this to get what you need to do done.

In the second half:

OK, maybe you thought you could make it through the entire film, but realize an hour in that you are going to have to pee at some point. Good news! You have one last opportunity. When the Avengers leave for the "missions" that Cap (Chris Evans) teases in the trailer, wait for the Nebula (Karen Gillan) section to kick off. You have approximately four to five minutes to go to the bathroom without missing anything crucial. Take any longer than that brief window and it will be at your own peril, though.

After that, the movie is pretty jam-packed with stuff you need to see. Die-hard fans will not want to move from their seats in the final two acts of the film.

Avengers: Endgame opens Friday, April 26, though you can see it in some theaters Thursday, April 25.
