Jeremy Renner broke both arms while filming ‘Avengers: Infinity War’

Acting in a superhero movie is serious business. While filming a stunt as Hawkeye in Avengers: Infinity War, Jeremy Renner (who is no stranger to action scenes) fractured his right elbow and left wrist.

Speaking to Variety, Renner said, “It’s part of the job.”

“I’m sort of a problem solver, you know. There will be an effect to it, but it won’t stop me from doing things that I need to be doing.” Apparently it’s no big deal to have two fractured arms on his current project, a comedy. He still can’t tie his own shoelaces, though.

Posting from the Infinity War set last month, Renner shared a photo of himself wearing braces on his arms, with the hashtag #pullthrough.
