If you’ve enjoyed Matt Faction‘s run on Hawkeye then you’re very familiar with Faction’s take on how much Hawkeye gets banged around and beat up while trying to go about his daily routine. (If you haven’t read that series you should.) In a life mirroring art moment, Jeremy Renner fractured his right elbow and left wrist during a stunt while filming Avengers: Infinity War. Check out his Instagram post below.

Renner told Variety:

That’s how it goes, it’s part of the job.

Renner doesn’t explain which stunt caused the injuries, but posted these two posts to Instagram.

 

Fall down seven times…stand up 8! #fixedup #pushthrough

Ouch…

Renner said this about how the injuries might effect his schedule:

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. 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.

Hang in there Hawkeye.
