According to Deadline, Ulliel was hospitalized Tuesday after suffering a head injury.

The outlet states the actor was transported by helicopter to a hospital in Grenoble following an accident on the slopes in the Savoie region.

It has been reported that Ulliel collided with another skier at an intersection between two slopes.

The mountain police service working at the accident site said that there have been multiple incidents per day in recent weeks due to the snow hardening.

Ulliel plays Moon Knight villain Anton Mogart aka Midnight Man, on the forthcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe series.

Production is said to have been completed, and given the recently announced March 30 premiere date, it sounds like all of Ulliel's scenes were completed prior to his passing.

The aforementioned series stars Oscar Isaac and Ethan Hawke, with the first full-length trailer dropping just a few days ago.

It is unclear whether the planned March 30 premiere for the series will proceed as planned or if Disney+ will postpone the premiere.
