It’s a good thing that Jeremy Renner was cast as Hawkeye in the “Avengers” movies and not Matt Damon, judging by a hilarious new video shared on Instagram by Chris Hemsworth.
In the video, the two longtime pals are apparently goofing around while vacationing together, and are in the midst of an argument in which Hemsworth accuses the “Bourne Identity” star of not doing his own stunts.
“You don’t even know how to use that bow and arrow,” says Hemsworth, leading Damon to take aim at him with the toy bow he’s holding in his hand.
Damon sends the rubber-tipped arrow flying at the “Thor” star — who expertly grabs it out of the air and then flings it back at Damon, striking him smack in the middle of his forehead.
“That’s messed up, man,” Damon says dejectedly while walking away with the arrow’s suction cup attached to his face. “I never said Hawkeye wasn’t cool.”
Hemsworth revealed the whole thing was a setup in the Instagram caption, writing, “And it only took one take…. Directed by the great Cristian Prieto.” (Prieto, by the way, is half-brother of Hemsworth’s wife, Elsa Pataky.)
