Jeremy Renner Inspires Fans With Recovery Footage: 'Strongest Avenger'

Jeremy Renner has been keeping fans in the loop on his recovery following his near-death accident, and he's making major strides.

The Hawkeye actor, 52, took to his Instagram to share a video of his progress walking on his own. The video montage—captured by his personal trainer—shows him from the beginning of his recovery journey where he walked with assistance from a walker, to walking on an anti-gravity treadmill, and finally, walking on his own!

Renner explained in the caption that his trainer made the video to remind him of his exponential recovery progress, writing, "My PT made this for reference and to remember, you cannot walk unless you take one step at a time!"

The actor appropriately added the hashtag: #onefootinfrontoftheother.

Many fans could not believe his progress and took to the comments calling him a real-life Avenger.

"U ARE A REAL AVENGER RESPECT," one fan exclaimed.

"The strongest avenger ever!! 🥷🏽🏹🙌🏽✨," another user wrote.

Some fans also opened up about their own recovery journeys, sharing that Renner has inspired them to keep moving forward.

"An inspiration I am currently in a wheelchair but I have started doing simple exercises and can now walk for a few minutes into my garden. Keep up the good work 💪👍," one fan wrote.

"One foot in front of the other. Your strength is tremendous. ❤️👊🏼," film director, Zach Merck applauded.

A few days prior, Renner shared a video of his leg exercises that showed him running in place, leaping, and squatting with assistance. "I've decided to push through the pain of progress (this damn shattered tibia) and take the new parts for a tiny test drive. The body is miraculous…Even though I feel like the Tin Man, needing oil for all my new joints (hips, knees, ankles, tibia, etc.). Encouraged after this warm up to press on (don't tell my PT)," he wrote alongside the clip.

On New Year's Day, Renner was crushed by a snowplow when the vehicle began to slide sideways toward the actor's nephew. He jumped out of the moving snowplow and attempted to stop it, but he was pulled underneath, breaking 30 bones in the process.
