Renner: Avengers stunts were blast

Press Association23 September 2012

Jeremy Renner has raved about his time in Hollywood blockbuster Avengers Assemble - because he loved the catering.

The Hurt Locker star plays Hawkeye in director Joss Whedon's action movie, which also stars Robert Downey Jr, Samuel L Jackson and Mark Ruffalo.

Jeremy revealed: "Shooting the Avengers was a blast... there's much better food on set."

Of the stunts and training, Jeremy admitted: "I actually didn't have to do very much archery training because I was using CGI arrows and I was shooting CGI monsters."

He added: "It's like learning a new language or a dance."

Co-star Tom Hiddleston, who plays villain Loki, also expressed his joy at the film's action scenes.

He said: "I love doing the stunts and flying around on wires. At the very beginning, the first I had to do was jump off a platform, do a 30-foot leap and spear somebody in the chest.

"Joss [Whedon] wanted me to fly beyond the horizontal, so they attached a harness to me under my costume, which enabled me to dive headfirst towards the camera. I felt like I was part of a circus trapeze act! It was fantastic."

Avengers Assemble is out now on DVD.
