Demi Lovato is no superhero

Demi Lovato and Marvel Comics have joined forces to put a stop to those rumors that the troubled teen will appear in the upcoming superhero ensemble "The Avengers."

A recent Radar report claimed that Lovato, 18, was up for a role in the Joss Whedon-directed film, which has a cast that includes Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man, Chris Evans as Captain America, and Mark Ruffalo as The Hulk.

But sources in both Lovato's and Marvel's camps tell the Hollywood Reporter the story is false and that the Disney star - currently in rehab for "emotional and physical issues" - will not be involved in the film, partly because it would be too problematic to hire her while she's still in treatment.

Still, the Hollywood Reporter notes, "The Avengers" - which is set to begin shooting April 1 - is looking to add a female to its male-heavy cast. Scarlett Johansson, who plays Black Widow, is currently the only woman in the lineup and Marvel reportedly wants to sign on one more actress for a role that has yet to be revealed.
