Playing New Couple Alert! Chris Evans and Jenny Slate Are Dating

Jenny Slate has officially moved on -- with a superhero.

Following her split from husband Dean Fleischer-Camp earlier this month, the Parks and Recreation star is now dating Captain America: Civil War actor Chris Evans, two sources confirmed to ET.

Slate and Evans, both 34, are starring together in Fox Searchlight's Gifted, an upcoming drama directed by Marc Webb. Another source reveals that back in March, the two went on a double date with Evan's brother, Scott, and his boyfriend, Rich, to Magnolia, a bistro-style lounge in Hollywood, California.

Following the news, their fans and celebrity friends took to Twitter to share their excitement over the pairing.

"…so Thor and I have a chance?" Mindy Kaling joked, shouting out Evans' Avengers co-star, Chris Hemsworth.

"DOUBLE DATE AND BREAK THE INTERNET," one user replied. Another happy fan tweeted, "This is such a win for funny girls everywhere, I can't even stand it."

In March, Slate and Evans chatted with Anna Faris on her Unqualified podcast, where they were already gushing over each other.

"I didn't know what to expect when I met Chris, I was a little scared because I kind of felt like, 'Well, I don't know him. He's a giant man with huge muscles and he's Captain America. How could we ever connect?'" Slate confessed. "[But the] first night that we hung out I was like, 'Wow, I could hang out with Chris for like 90 hours.''

Evans chimed in, adding, "Oddly enough, I've only known Jenny for a few months, which is insane to say because we're like the same animal."

When ET caught up with Evans last September ahead of his directorial debut in Before We Go, he adorably admitted he has a soft side.

"I consider myself a very romantic guy," he said. "I don't necessarily consider romance to be isolated simply between two people. I'm romantic with my love of music or art or nature. I love things."
