January 18, 2023

Jeremy Renner has hinted he will return home after being hospitalized for over half a month. The The Mayor of Kingstown star underwent surgery and was hospitalized after a snow plow accident on New Year’s Day.

Renner suffered serious injuries and blunt chest trauma after being accidentally run over by a giant snow removal machine, the PistenBully. At the time, he was reportedly in critical but stable condition.

In a new tweet Monday night, the 52-year-old responded to a post about the season 2 premiere of The Mayor of Kingston. He said he was very excited to watch the first episode of the show with his family at home outside of his brain fog in recovery.

First, the Hawkeye sustained serious injuries near his home in Reno, Nevada, when he was plowing snow following a family member whose car got stuck in the ice. Washoe County Sheriff Darin Balaam shared the HuffPost says his office believes the actor was towing the vehicle with a snowplow when the machine swerved and ran him over as he tried to regain control.

He suffered blunt chest trauma and orthopedic injuries in the accident. After being taken to the hospital on January 1, he underwent surgery the next day and spent a few days in intensive care to recover. Balaam confirmed in a press conference on January 4 that he was not affected at all, eh Page Six reported.

On Jan. 3, Renner himself updated his fans on Instagram, thanking everyone for their continued support while admitting he was too broken to type. Since then he has been active again on social media. Many claim he is already out of danger, although his selfie at the hospital shows his facial injuries.

He later shared a clip of his activities at the hospital, such as his mother and sister treating him to a spa day and celebrating his 52nd birthday with the hospital staff. Of course, many of the Golden Globe nominee’s fans and fellow actors wish him the best in his recovery.

His fellow Marvel Cinematic Universe actors, starting with Josh Brolin, told him he was blessed and wished him a speedy recovery, calling him his brother and adding a heart emoji. Chris Evan also called him badass, while Paul Bettany wished him love and healing. Chris Hemsworth also wished him a speedy recovery.

Meanwhile, Renner released another post late last week, taking a look at his snowy home in Nevada. I miss my happy place, he captioned his post. He then advised his neighbors to stay safe out there after the recent snowstorm, saying it was a tough drive over the pass.
