Melissa McCarthy has refused to confirm or deny her appearance in the upcoming Marvel movie "Thor: Love And Thunder," just like what Andrew Garfield did ahead of "Spider-Man: No Way Home" release. However, photos of the actress in Hela's costume are already doing the rounds on social media.

The 51-year-old actress appeared Wednesday on "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" and said she isn't appearing in the upcoming Marvel movie, despite being captured by the paparazzi in Hela's costume.

In the first "Thor" movie, titled "Thor: Ragnarok," Hela was played by actress Cate Blanchett. However, after some on-set photos of McCarthy surfaced online in March, fans suspected she will be playing Fake Hela in the movie.

Showing her the same on-set photos, Fallon asked the actress, "It looks like you on the set of Thor: Love and Thunder and my question is, is that you? Is this photo real?"

"You know what that was? That was me going to my cousin Dawn’s bridal book party," McCarthy joked. "That's [how] you dress to go to a bridal book party."

Fallon went on to ask, "So you cannot confirm nor deny this is…" and McCarthy replied, "If that is even me... And if it is, that was at Dawn's house."

Marvel Studios released a trailer of the flick in May. The teaser, which runs for two minutes and 16 seconds, tells the story of Thor by featuring past events from 2017's "Thor: Ragnarok" and 2019's "Avengers: Endgame."

"Thor: Love and Thunder" will hit the theaters on July 8. The cast members also include Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Christian Bale, Chris Pratt and Karen Gillan. The movie is helmed by director Taika Waititi.

"We stick pretty closely to Jane's storyline, and what happened to Jane," Waititi said last month. "Because that was such an influence on the film. We're trying to take the best parts of that."

"I think a lot of fans are gonna potentially assume, 'Oh, OK, this is the passing on of the torch'... I'm not privy to any plans Marvel has for the future, but I don't think that's the case," he added.
