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.
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."
