LOS ANGELES — “Avengers” star Jeremy Renner is being treated for serious injuries sustained while plowing snow, the actor’s representative said Sunday.
Renner, 51, is in critical but stable condition, the actor’s representative said. No other details were available on the extent of Renner’s injuries.
The actor has a home in Nevada, but it is not clear where he was injured. Renner plays Hawkeye, a sharpshooting member of the Avengers superhero squad in the sprawling Marvel film and television universe.
He is a two-time Oscar nominee for acting, earning back-to-back nods for “The Hurt Locker” and “The Town.” Renner’s portrayal of a bomb disposal specialist in Iraq in 2008’s “The Hurt Locker” helped turn him into a household name.
2012’s “The Avengers” cemented him as part of Marvel’s grand storytelling ambitions, with his character appearing in several sequels and getting his own Disney+ series, “Hawkeye.”
