“Avengers” actor Mark Ruffalo encouraged fans to support co-star Jeremy Renner after a snow-plowing accident left him hospitalized in critical but stable condition.

Renner sustained blunt chest trauma and orthopedic injuries Sunday and remained in an intensive care unit following surgery, his representative said in an update late Monday.

“Prayers up for our brother @jeremyrenner on a full and speedy recovery,” Ruffalo wrote on Instagram. “Please send healing goodness his way.”

Renner, 51, plays Hawkeye and Ruffalo portrays the Hulk in several Marvel movies and shows. They’ve repeatedly appeared in the franchise together since 2012′s “The Avengers,” in which their characters are among the original six members of the titular superhero team.

Others from the Marvel community to share support include James Gunn, who directed the “Guardians of the Galaxy” movies and executive-produced “Avengers: Endgame,” which Renner stars in.

“My heart is with @JeremyRenner,” Gunn tweeted, along with a prayer-hands emoji.

Another message came from Tara Strong, who voices Miss Minutes on the Marvel series “Loki” and who worked with Renner on “National Lampoon’s Senior Trip.”

“My sweet @JeremyRenner. Loved you for decades,” Strong tweeted. “From a Senior Trip to the #MCU. Sending you & your closest healing love, light & strength for a full recovery.”

Renner’s team hasn’t disclosed the nature of the accident, which occurred in Reno, Nev., but a neighbor told TMZ the actor suffered significant blood loss after a snowplow ran over his leg.

The Washoe County Sheriff’s Office described Renner’s injury as “traumatic” and said it arranged for the actor to be airlifted to a nearby hospital.

Renner debuted as Hawkeye, the archer Avenger, in 2011′s “Thor.” His repeated appearances as the character since include the main role in the 2021 series “Hawkeye.”

The actor received Oscar nominations for “The Town” and “The Hurt Locker” and is also known for the “Mission Impossible” movies and the thriller series “Mayor of Kingstown.”
