From one MCU hero to another, Jeremy Renner is another actor whose reputation far exceeds his actual ability.

In recent years, Renner has proved himself a capable action star with his performances in multiple MCU offerings, The Bourne Legacy, and the Mission Impossible franchise. Before that, he was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Actor for his role in 2008 war thriller The Hurt Locker, so you’d be forgiven for thinking that Renner is relatively diverse as a performer.

In fact, Renner actually spends much of his time doing the same vaguely smug and somehow also vacant expression, and the vast majority of his roles have been pretty unimpressive. In fact, whenever Renner finds himself in a good movie, he’s almost always the most bland and uninteresting aspect, and instead, his reputation has been bolstered by great career choices and some incredibly talented co-stars.
