During the missions, whatever movie you prefer, Tony Stark spend more than 5 hours per mission (given the time passed and the sequence of the movies) in the suit. I was wondering if he has physiologic needs (such as poop or pee) and having the armor, what could he do?

    "Urinate": sophisticated, adult, medical term for liquid elimination. "Poop": Four-year-old's term for solid elimination. I would expect either "Urinate or defecate" or "Pee or poop" but the mixture amuses me (+1 anyway). – Todd Wilcox Mar 13 '16 at 5:39

Yes, he can. Specifically, he can urinate.

In the second part of Iron Man (2010), Tony is celebrating his birthday with almost 90% of paladium in his body and decided to celebrate like the last party of his life and put his suit for the party. When he's making a speech in front of his guests, he says that many people ask often how to go to the bathroom with the armor and make a joke.

Screenshot of the movie. Suddendly, Pepper ask Tony to end the party, Tony try to kiss her and she said:

You just pee in your suit!

Tony replied Pepper:

I know but it has (the suit) a filter system. You could drink that water (ex-urine).

    This answer feels incomplete given that we often see him going in or out of his suit but never naked or with what can see as filtering clothes. – Olivier Grégoire Mar 11 '16 at 9:36

    Clearly he's wearing underwear with suitable (all puns intended) attachments – Tim B Mar 11 '16 at 10:05

    @olivier that's an intentionally ignored plot hole for the sake of a joke. – cde Mar 11 '16 at 14:31
