Jeremy Renner devoted his time to Marvel’s “Avengers” franchise in his latest recovery update.
The ‘Hawkeye’ star shared one Instagram video of himself training on a recumbent bike on Mondays. In the clip, Renner uses a strap to help his left leg kick the machine while his right leg remains in a resting position.
“Whatever it takes,” he captioned the video. He also tagged Technogym, the training facility.
If Renner’s motivational caption sounds familiar to Marvel fans, it’s most likely because it’s a line uttered by his “Avengers: Endgame” co-star Chris Evans during a pivotal moment in the 2019 film.
In their last-ditch effort to defeat Thanos (Josh Brolin), the titular group of heroes contemplate their grand mission to restore order to the universe.
“Five years ago we lost. All of us. We’ve lost friends, we’ve lost family, we’ve lost a part of ourselves,” says Evans’ Captain America. “Today we have the chance to take it all back.”
Iron Man by Robert Downey Jr. replies, “We’re going to win.”
“Whatever it takes,” Evans adds.
Renner’s Clint “Hawkeye” Barton, Scarlett Johansson’s Natasha “Black Widow” Romanoff, and other members of the “Avengers” team also recite the phrase in Marvel’s dramatic trailer.
The Instagram post from the “Mayor of Kingstown” actor comes nearly two months after he was hospitalized on Jan. 1 for serious injuries sustained in a snowplow accident.
In a Instagram post shared on January 21Renner said he dealt with “30 plus broken bones” as a result of the accident, but said they “will heal, grow stronger, just as the love and connection with family and friends deepens.”
On Monday, Renner also said he is focusing on his “mental recovery” as well. He shared a photo of his last lecture: “The Book of Awakening”, by poet and philosopher Mark Nepo.
With Renner seemingly regaining his physical strength, Technogym said in his Instagram Story on Tuesday that the actor “will come back stronger than ever”.
