In an unfortunate instance of a fake superhero getting really hurt, Jeremy Renner fractured both arms while doing a stunt for Infinity War.

Renner told the story of how he fractured his right elbow and left wrist at Karlovy Vary Film Festival (via Variety). For someone with two arms in braces, he seems pretty determined to keep working, saying that the injuries “won’t stop [him] from things that [he needs] to be doing”.
That’s impressive, because although his Instagram shows him healing it also looks painful as hell:
“I’ll heal fast. I’m doing everything I can to heal faster,” he continued. Sadly, Hawkeye does not have super-healing, so in both the MCU and the real world, Renner’s going to have to get better on regular old human time.
We also don’t know exactly what stunt laid Renner low, but it had better have been a good one. If he doesn’t have a really badarse moment to justify this, that will just be sad.
