The Hawkeye famed actor Jeremy Renner and Brie Larson who plays Captain Marvel, both of the MCU clan were in a tiff for the most unexpected reason.  Superheroes can be seen fighting oftentimes dangerous villains and sometimes each other on the silver screen.

Brie Larson and Jeremy Renner’s tiff

It all started with an innocent interview of Brie Larson and Jeremy Renner with NDTV, where she expressed how excited she was to use her platform responsibly to promote good messages now that she is officially a member of the MCU. She is often seen as vocal about her beliefs and promoting good causes on her social media platforms. Larson does her part to promote online activism on various topics.

“I am committed to self-improvement and I work at being the best person I can be and using this platform for as much good as I can. It doesn’t mean I don’t make mistakes, but I’m very comfortable with that and allowing myself to learn from those mistakes.” 

Larson said explaining how tricky it sometimes is to use one’s platforms for good.

Speaking to InStyle, on another occasion Brie Larson conveyed how grateful she was and how powerful the platform that MCU presented her made her feel.

“The movie was the biggest and best opportunity I could have ever asked for. It was, like, my superpower. This could be my form of activism: doing a film that can play all over the world and be in more places than I can be physically.”

These comments may seem sweet and unharmful to some, but not Jeremy Renner. He followed the remarks made by Larson with some of his own hot takes.

“I’m pretty accountable and responsible in my own life at any rate. Celebrity isn’t something that I use as any sort of platform to be more responsible or accountable, I suppose. It’s certainly an absolute blessing to see the joy on kids’ faces. I don’t think there is a feeling that comes close to that.”

After which, anyone could sense a riff going on between the two. Throughout the interview, the chemistry between the two was absolutely dull.
