Scarlett Johansson feared she might never see her “Avengers” co-star Jeremy Renner again after he suffered severe injuries from a near-fatal snowplow accident, including blunt chest trauma and orthopedic injuries.
During an interview with Variety, Johansson, 38, shared her initial shock upon learning about Renner’s accident, where he was crushed by a nearly 15,000-pound snow machine while trying to save his nephew’s car. At the time of the incident in January, Johansson was filming “Project Artemis” in Atlanta.
Recalling the conversations on the “Avengers” text chain, Johansson revealed that the group, including the original six Avengers members, were in awe of Renner’s superhero-like courage and resilience.
The “Black Widow” star went on to describe the emotional reunion with Renner during his extensive recovery. She expressed her overwhelming happiness at seeing him again, not knowing if she would have the opportunity. Johansson was deeply moved by Renner’s mental strength and spiritual nature, which shines through in his work. She found joy in witnessing his vibrant and light-filled personality and the shared laughter they enjoyed.

Chris Evans, 41, echoed Johansson’s sentiments, expressing his delight in visiting Renner and seeing his co-star in good spirits. There were no tears but instead a lot of laughter, smiles, and hugs. Evans acknowledged Renner’s ability to transform a potentially tragic situation into something inspiring.
Renner, 52, has been providing updates on his health and recovery following the life-threatening accident. Despite a broken tibia, he humorously referred to his “new” body in an Instagram video where he performed exercises, emphasizing the miraculous nature of the human body.
Renner has been working closely with a physical therapist, who documented his progress in a video compilation. The actor’s determination and resilience have driven him forward, taking one step at a time to regain mobility.
According to an incident report from the Washoe County Sheriff’s Office, the accident occurred on January 1 when Renner was attempting to tow his nephew’s truck out of the snow. He suffered injuries to his torso, extremities, face, and head.
