Following a snow plow accident this year, it looked like Jeremy Renner's acting career might be over. Well, he's gearing up for a comeback after his miraculous recovery, and you can find out more here...

Hawkeye star Jeremy Renner proved himself a real hero at the start of 2023 when he saved his nephew in a slow plow accident that very nearly ended up costing the actor his life. 

Initially, it was unclear how well Renner would recover from his life-threatening injuries, but he appears to be every bit as tough as the Avenger he plays in the MCU. Following a lengthy stint in hospital, he's kept fans updated on his progress on social media and even said back in June that he's keen to suit up as Clint Barton again.

A year on from that accident, Renner is finally ready to return to acting. The Avengers: Endgame star took to Instagram to share a post from his Mayor of Kingstown co-star Emma Laird which confirmed they'll be on set together next week. 

Renner captioned the image with, "It's happening."


During an interview with Diane Sawyer in March, it was revealed by the host that Renner suffered, "eight ribs broken in 14 places. Right knee, right ankle broken...left ankle broken. Right shoulder broken. Face, eye socket, jaw broken. Lung collapsed."

We're pleased to see such a positive update from Renner and this all but guarantees he'll be part of the next Avengers movies. We'd hoped Hawkeye might get a second season, but it appears the plan now is for Kate Bishop is to join the Young Avengers. 

Clint Barton coming out of retirement near the end of the Multiverse Saga is surely an inevitability, anyway, especially if it's true that the original six Avengers will reunite in some form. 

We most recently saw Hawkeye in What If...? season 2 episode, "What If... Happy Hogan Saved Christmas?" Renner only briefly voiced the archer there, though it's not outside the realm of possibility he recorded his lines during production for season 1 before his accident took place. 

Stay tuned for updates as we have them.

From Academy Award nominee Taylor Sheridan, co-creator of Yellowstone, Mayor of Kingstown follows the McLusky family - power brokers in Kingstown, Michigan where the business of incarceration is the only thriving industry. Tackling themes of systemic racism, corruption and inequality, the series provides a stark look at their attempt to bring order and justice to a town that has neither.

So good to know he's ok. That was frightening to me, can't imagine how it was for his family.

There's something about Emma Laird. Such a cutie.

It's my favorite moment of an otherwise (personally) crappy end of 2023.

Renner guest starred on Angel back in '99/2000. Season 1. ep 11: Somnambulist. It is up there with all-time favorite episode of the show.
He was a vamp turned by Angel in the era right after Angel, Darla, Spike and Drusilla all went their separate ways...mid to late 1800s.
So the pupil has come to town recommitting murders that are similar to the past deeds Angel would do and teach him.

Hawkeye FTW!!!

Glad he didnt have to lose any limbs, crazy that he got a broken face, eye socket and jaw all from getting ran over by a snow plow ?? The worse injury though was probably his knee
Blastaar - 12/30/2023, 11:51 AM
Maybe he needs to fix Hawkeye's arc because the character got worse than the short hand of the stick. Well, obviously he can't because that's out of his hands.

This dude's recovery and speed is nothing short of a miracle. And stem cells, I'm sure.
