Jeremy Renner’s top movies to watch: from Avengers’ Hawkeye and Dahmer to The Hurt Locker
Marvel actor Jeremy Renner continues to recover from a serious injury and has thanked fans for their “kind words” on social media. We look at all of his best shows and movies
US movie star Jeremy Renner had been ploughing snow at his property near Reno, Nevada when he suffered serious injuries. He thanked fans on social media on Wednesday (4 January) saying “I’m too messed up now to type. But I send love to you all.” He subsequently spoke for the first time on video on Thursday (5 January), as he was pampered by his mother and sister.
Renner is notable for his role as the bow and arrow-wielding hero of the Avengers franchise in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. He played Clint Barton / Hawkeye in six films, not including the streaming series on Disney +, where he played the titular character. And it’s not the only blockbuster franchise he’s been in. From The Bourne Legacy to Mission Impossible, Renner got his big break in 2002, playing serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer.
While the actor may be enjoying his success as an action star, he certainly has the dramatic chops that prepare him for more serious roles. Renner is a two-time Academy Award nominee and has appeared in many of the best films of the past twenty years.
Here’s some of the major movies and series he’s starred in:
