The New Year didn’t start too great for Marvel fans when it was reported that Hawkeye star Jeremy Renner got into an accident with a snow plow, leaving him in critical condition. A lot of fans were worried for the Marvel star, but now he’s updated that he’s on the mend moving forward.
Here’s Renner’s post on Twitter:
I want to thank EVERYONE for their messages and thoughtfulness. Much love and appreciation to you all. These 30 plus broken bones will mend , grow stronger, just like the love and bond with family and friends deepens pic.twitter.com/kzj2CLYdXA

Back when Renner’s accident was first reported, a lot of rumors were flying around from him losing both legs to the accident starting some kind of criminal investigation. Based on the photo, I guess it’s safe to say that Renner will be walking away from the incident in one piece; but we probably shouldn’t expect him to be jumping around as Hawkeye anytime soon.
Speaking of Hawkeye, the actor had already passed the torch on to Hailee Steinfeld’s Kate Bishop in his own show, with the tease that she would be taking the mantle. But since big events always need to happen in the movies, I think we’ll be seeing Clint Barton in the MCU maybe one or two more times. There’s probably no way they’re going to have Secret Wars and not have him appear (what with all the Robert Downey Jr. rumors flying around).
We don’t know when Renner’s next MCU appearance will be, but hopefully we’ll get to see Clint sooner rather than later.
Former Avenger Clint Barton has a seemingly simple mission: get back to his family for Christmas. Possible? Maybe with the help of Kate Bishop, a 22-year-old archer with dreams of becoming a Super Hero. The two are forced to work together when a presence from Barton’s past threatens to derail far more than the festive spirit.
