Here’s a spoiler-free bathroom break guide to Avengers: Endgame

Avengers: Endgame is an extraordinarily long film, but if you have the urge to go to the bathroom this is when you should go.

Don’t let a full bladder ruin Avengers: Endgame for you.

The biggest cultural event this side of Game of Thrones is kicking off this weekend, as Marvel is releasing the culmination of a cinematic strategy started back in 2008 with Iron Man. We’re finally going to get a conclusion to everything that has happened with Thanos, the infinity stones, and everything between.

But Endgame wouldn’t be the first moviegoing experience where someone had to go to the bathroom in the middle of it. That someone could be you, but there’s no need to let that ruin the experience for you.

Here’s a spoiler-free guide to when you should hit the bathroom during Avengers: Endgame. 

There seems to be only 3 good times to pee during #endgame
1) when the San Francisco title card displays
2) Hulk has lunch
3) when the NJ title card comes up
Nothing after that and they all accur in the first half

Avengers: Endgame is up there with Return of the King as a film that you will probably see more than once as to not miss out on the cultural conversation that happens around it. But even if you’re going to see it more than once, it’s that first-time viewing experience that is so precious you can’t allow something like a bathroom break ruin it.

The downside is that all of the breaks appear to be in the first half of the movie, which means unless you get your break out of the way at the start you might still run into an issue later on.

An easy solution to this is to pace yourself with the soda and make sure you don’t drink any fluids in the hours leading up to the showtime. It seems extreme but you’ll thank yourself when you’re not getting up in the middle of Endgame and missing part of the action.
