Here's the exact moment you should take a bathroom break during Avengers: Endgame
Heads up, readers - this story is pretty much SPOILER FREE except for some minor scene details.
In the next few days, superhero nerds will assemble in movie theatres around the globe to watch the highly anticipated climax to over 10 years to compelling storytelling and breathtaking cinematic accomplishment... and Thor: The Dark World.
That's right, Phase 3 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is coming to a close, as the remaining Avengers - now joined by the seemingly indestructible Captain Marvel - once again come together in a last-ditch effort to overthrow Thanos and bring their friends back from the dustbuster.
Get yourself hyped with the amazing Avengers: Endgame trailer below:
But after Marvel revealed that Avengers: Endgame will be a staggering three hours and two very important minutes long, many fans were left thinking that they would need a superhero's bladder just to survive the movie without a bathroom break. But the truth is, most of us just simply can't watch the entire movie without needing to run to the restrooms - especially considering the fact we'll be sipping on a gallon of cola throughout the film.
Now, it should go without saying that EVERYBODY should be using the restroom during the previews, but the chances are that many of us are going to have to dash out during the movie to once again empty the tank and/or drop the kids off at the pool.
This is horrible news, considering many of us will have spent over $15 dollars on a ticket - not the mention the 45 hours we've already spent watching the other 21 MCU movies - but fear not, because there are several optimal moments to go lay some cable. Here they are:
Roughly 55 minutes in
Movie's Location: Japan
Viewers are caught up to what Hawkeye (now Ronin) has been up to, but we already knew he was going to be joining up with the Avengers at some point, so you’re not missing much here other than a rainy fight scene - and all that rain will only make you want to take a WikiLeak anyway.
Roughly 1 hour and 3 minutes in
Movie's Location: Avengers HQ
If you’re bored of hearing about what the Infinity Stones are for like the twelfth time, go ahead and drain the radiator. If you're a huge fan (which, if you're reading this, you definitely will be), then you won't be missing anything you already know.
Check out this exclusive Endgame clip Marvel released ahead of the movie's release:
Roughly 1 hour and 10 minutes in
Movie's Location: Now that would be a Spoiler...
Rocket and Thor go somewhere together, but there are a few minutes of noncrucial banter, so this is a good time rush to the loo for a poo.
Roughly 1 hour and 40 minutes in
Movie's Location: New Jersey
A car will drive by and cut to a new scene - now's your time to rush to the porcelain throne.
And there you have it! Now you can go and watch the majority of Avengers: Endgame in comfort.
