July 7 (UPI) -- Jeremy Renner is recovering after breaking both of his arms on the set of Tag.

"That's how it goes," Renner said of his injuries while promoting his movie Wind River, according to Variety. "It's part of the job.

"I'm sort of a problem solver, you know. There will be an effect to it, but it won't stop me from doing things that I need to be doing," he promised. "I'll heal fast. I'm doing everything I can to heal faster."

Renner stars in Wind River with Elizabeth Olsen, who will reprise Wanda Maximoff, aka Scarlet Witch, in Avengers: Infinity War. The pair previously co-starred in Avengers: Age of Ultron and Captain America: Civil War.

"Getting the opportunity to work with a friend in a different capacity, diving into emotional character stuff, we were able to do more things and a little differently than with an actress I did not know very well," Renner said, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Renner had shared a photo on Instagram of himself wearing two arm braces in June, but didn't offer an explanation at the time.

"Fall down seven times...stand up 8! #fixedup #pushthrough," he captioned the picture.
