Not for a role either, he sustained actual literal injuries while on a movie set.
Modesto-born Jeremy Renner was filming for a new movie (not Avengers, but another project he’s been working on). It’s a movie called “Tag,” basically about these guys who grew up together playing tag, and just continued the game into adulthood. Anyway, he broke both of his arms while working on a scene.
We don’t really have details on how the injury happened, but we do know that he fractured his right arm and his left wrist. The production crew says that filming won’t be affected much at all, and filming for his next Hawkeye role won’t be affected one bit.
