Part of the Avengers team was back together for a moment, in a private and emotional reunion, as Scarlett Johansson and Chris Evans paid a visit to fellow Marvel actor Jeremy Renner. In an interview, Johansson expressed her joy in being together again with Renner after the traumatic event he went through.

“I was honestly so happy to see him. I didn’t know if I was ever going to see him again,” she said, further revealing how well he’s doing. “To not only see him again but to see him thriving and in such an amazing space, mentally. I just was so happy to see that he is full of life and light, and he’s also hilarious. We laughed a lot.”

The Black Widow star also offered some insight into how she felt when she heard the news of the accident. “I was very upset,” Johansson stated. However, she was quick to add that the mood of those close to him uplifted as Renner’s health improved.

“On the Avengers text chain, we’re like, ’OK, you beat us all. That’s it. You won,’” she joked about the group chat that includes the original Avengers — Johansson, Renner, Evans, Mark Rufallo, Robert Downey Jr. and Chris Hemsworth. “That’s like real superhero stuff. It’s unbelievable.”

He’s on an impressive road to recovery.

In an Instagram video, the actor who broke over 30 bones and underwent multiple surgeries after a snowplow accident while trying to save his nephew, showed how his learning to walk again and the improvement his made so far. “You cannot walk unless you take one step at a time,” he wrote in the caption.

His health updates online have been constant and the positivity they radiate is never-ending. So, we can’t wait to see Renner back in tip-top shape again!

The world is full of other inspiring stories, some of which we never get to hear about because they happen beyond Hollywood. But here at Bright Side, we aim to tell all positive tales, like that of a model who showed the real meaning of resilience after getting mauled by a dog.
