Marvel actor Jeremy Renner is reportedly in a “critical but stable” condition in hospital after a “weather-related accident”.

A spokesperson for the actor told US entertainment outlet Deadline the 51-year-old was airlifted to hospital on Sunday after the incident, which occurred while he was ploughing snow.

The spokesperson added Renner was with his family and “receiving excellent care”.

It came as dozens of people were killed across the US amid blizzard conditions.

The Arctic blast stirred up heavy winds and snow, trapping some residents inside their houses with snowdrifts and knocking out power to tens of thousands of homes and businesses.

Renner previously tweeted about the snow at his US ranch in December, writing: “Lake Tahoe snowfall is no joke.”

Renner, a two-time Oscar nominee, is well-known for playing Hawkeye in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

He has also featured in films including The Hurt Locker, American Hustle, and Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol.

He is currently starring in Paramount+ series The Mayor Of Kingstown.
