Jeremy Renner Is Back On The Gym Grind, Why Wasn’t He In ‘Captain America’?

Well hello there, Jeremy Renner! Look who’s back doing what he does best.

The actor was spotted in Los Angeles today, hitting up his gym like always. Except this time he had a garbage bag full of stuff. Think it’s the juice he was carrying last time? Who knows.

All I know is that Jeremy had better keep that body of his fit for Avengers: Age of Ultron. He looked pretty sexy when we got our first look at him on set, so he doesn’t have to do much. 

Now, did you guys see Captain America: The Winter Soliderthis past week? If you did–or even if you didn’t–the movie spends a large amount of time focusing on S.H.I.E.L.D. That’s not really a spoiler. But since it’s all about them, you’d think that Hawkeye should have been there, right?

But the writers had a pretty good reason for not including him. “We knew we wanted Falcon there, we knew we wanted [Black Widow],” screenwriter Stephen McFeeley told Cinema Blend. “You’re introducing Winter Soldier. Fury’s got a bigger part in this one. It just started to seem like he was going to kind of get a crappy part.”

“If we were going to use him, we really wanted to use him well,” Christopher Markus said of Jeremy’s Hawkeye. They have a point. Plus, there was a lot going on in that movie. But it’s OK, because he will be kicking ass in Avengers. Launch the gallery to check out all the photos from his gym visit. Hopefully we’ll be seeing more of him soon.
