Demi Lovato has denied she will be appearing in The Avengers.
The Camp Rock star, who is currently in rehab for "emotional and physical issues", had been rumoured to star in the forthcoming Marvel superhero movie, but her spokespeople have brushed away the claims.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, "sources inside Lovato's camp as well as Marvel's, however, said there was no truth to the rumour, denying across the board Lovato's involvement".
Marvel may still be on the lookout for another female actress to join the male-dominated cast of the comic book adaptation, which includes Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow), Robert Downey Jr (Iron Man), Samuel Jackson (Nick Fury), Jeremy Renner (Hawkeye), Chris Evans (Captain America), Mark Ruffalo (Hulk) and Chris Hemsworth (Thor).
The Avengers, directed by Joss Whedon, is due to start filming next spring.
