WTF Has Jeremy Renner Been Doing This Summer? We Explain

Jeremy Renner Weird Summer

Jeremy Renner's Hawkeye was a key part of Avengers: Endgame, but starring in the highest-grossing movie of all time isn't the craziest thing the MCU actor did this summer. Renner, who made his Marvel Cinematic Universe debut back in 2011's Thor, has also been branching out into a music career and some other endeavors this year.

After Hawkeye was missing in last year's Avengers: Infinity War, there was a lot of hype around Renner's return to action in Avengers: Endgame this year. Blending the Hawkeye of the MCU with the Ronin character he later adopts in the comics, Renner's Clint Barton formed a key part of the original Avengers' swansong, although it's since been made official that he's coming back for a Hawkeye series on Disney+. If that was the end of it, then you'd probably think it'd been a pretty good summer for Renner. But it wasn't the end. Far from it, in fact.

After Avengers: Endgame, Renner took a turn into music, releasing his debut single "Heaven Don't Have A Name", which was initially released last year as a song by Sam Feldt featuring Renner, before he made his own solo effort. It features such lyrics as "She's got voodoo that will make you believe / Oh, she tastes like lipstick and Tanqueray." At the same time, Renner also released a cover of "House of the Rising Sun", but that isn't where his music career ended this summer (if, indeed, it's where it even really started).

The next step in Jeremy Renner's music career was a team-up with Jeep for a series of commercials, for which he produced original music to be featured in the adverts, with three songs called "Main Attraction", "Nomad", and "Sign". Renner's stated that he was aiming for a mix between Imagine Dragons and Queen, believing for some reason that would be a good sound for people to listen to, and in fairness you can definitely get vibes of the former in his music with Jeep. He also appears in these same Jeep commercials, which naturally involves him driving Jeeps, blasting out his own music, and angrily kicking sand at various points. There's also another Renner song available, called "It's Weird Not To Be Weird", featuring Taika Waititi in the video, and is weird because Jeremy Renner is trying to convince us he is actually weird.

That's still not the end of Renner's big summer, as the actor recently launching his own Amazon store. This is a thing lots of celebrities have, so isn't all that peculiar, but the fact that Amazon's The Jeremy Renner Store sells camping equipment definitely is. To tap into the Hawkeye brand, there's also some archery gear, and it's a pretty general range of outdoor activities and equipment, accompanied by photos of Renner which suggest that, unlike Clint Barton, he is really an A-list actor and not all that sued to cooking over a fire or fishing for his supper.

If you want to keep up-to-date with all of Renner's shenanigans, from Avengers: Endgame and his upcoming Hawkeye series to his music career, Amazon store, and whatever else he might decide to do next (which at this stage, could be just about anything), then luckily there's an app for that. Simply called Jeremy Renner, the app allows fans to keep up with Renner's activities, split into two feeds: there's one where Renner posts about himself, and another where fans can post about him, gaining rankings depending on how much love they show for him. You can also listen to the music Renner is at the time, when it's not just his own songs anyway, but only for 30-second snippets. All of this is real, and means Jeremy Renner has had one hell of a summer beyond just defeating Thanos.
