Geeks have been worried over the past few days as gossip site Radar Online revealed that Demi Lovato was up for a role in Joss Whedon's "The Avengers" that will be shooting in the spring. "'The Avengers' is ruined!" comic nerds cried, but as it turns out and as we pretty much figured, there isn't much truth to the rumor.
According to reps for the Disney star, when asked about the rumors about the project they've told us there's nothing to them. Considering Lovato went into rehab last month, something about this supposed casting never made much sense. So no need to panic or speculate as to what role Lovato might play because she won't be in the thing. "The Avengers" opens on May 4, 2012.
