Jeremy Renner, who plays Hawkeye in the Marvel films, has broken his arms during a stunt on Avengers: Infinity War.
Renner was today in attendance at the Karlovy Vary Film Festival in Czech Republic and was spotted wearing support for both his arms. He then confirmed in a press conference that he had “broke his arms” during a stunt on “Avengers: Infinity War,” revealing that he fractured his right elbow and his left wrist:
“That’s how it goes. It’s part of the job. I’m sort of a problem solver, you know. There will be an affect to it, but it won’t stop me from doing things that I need to be doing. I’ll heal fast. I’m doing everything I can to heal faster. I’m doing a job that isn’t really requiring a ton of stunts: It’s not an action movie, it’s a comedy — it just happens to have a few stunts in it. So I don’t have to beat a whole lot of people up or do anything crazy. So it won’t really affect my job… It affects how I get dressed in the morning. I can’t tie my shoes, but outside of that and everything else I can kind of get by.” he said.
