Jason Momoa, who stars as Aquaman in the DC Universe, also sent "all his aloha" for Renner's quick recovery.

Renner was rushed to hospital on New Year's Day after getting crushed by the 14,000lb SnowCat while attempting to help someone stuck in the snow near his ranch in Lake Tahoe, Nevada.

He suffered blunt force chest trauma and orthopaedic injuries after the vehicle started rolling and he tried to get back into the driver's seat and fell underneath it.

Renner was airlifted to hospital and thankfully, despite the severe damage, emergency services were able to stablise him and now he can focus on recovery. His family have been by his side throughout.

His sister Kym Renner later told People: "We are so thrilled with his progress. If anyone knows Jeremy, he is a fighter and doesn't mess around. He is crushing all the progress goals. We couldn't feel more positive about the road ahead."
