I have a ridiculously small bladder, so I’m very conscious of when to go to the bathroom during movies. Normally, my strategy is just to go before the movie starts and then not drink anything during the film. But I also have to see the entire film for my job, whereas most people (aka normal people) like to get popcorn and soda to watch with the movie. But since Avengers: Endgame is three hours and a minute long, you might not be able to hold it without doing damage to your organs.
So here’s the thing about Endgame: for a three hour movie, there’s not a lot of fat on it. To the great credit of directors Joe and Anthony Russo, they’ve made a film where just about every scene counts and moves the story forward. The film is also packed with so many great little moments that you’d be hard-pressed to get to a scene that doesn’t at least have one great takeaway in it. That makes it hard to plan your quick escape.
We’ve had discussions among the staff who have seen the film and we’ve talked about which scene it should be and how to describe that scene without spoiling anything. And we’ve come to this point when you should take your bathroom break:
About 55 minutes or so into the movie, there’s a scene in the rain in Tokyo. You’ve seen it in the trailer. When it starts raining, that’s your moment. You’ve got about five minutes to make it back. If you don’t see this scene, you’ll be able to figure out what happens in it. It’s not a bad scene, but it’s just your best opportunity to use the restroom.
Again, if you don’t want to miss a minute of Endgame, then just go to the bathroom before the movie starts and don’t drink anything during the picture.
