A Post reporter is dating Captain America!

Actress Jenny Slate — who plays a New York Post staffer in the upcoming film “Brain on Fire” — hit the New York premiere of her animated movie “The Secret Life of Pets” Saturday with Chris Evans, confirming the pair’s rumored romance.

The two reportedly met on the set of “Gifted,” which has yet to be released. On an April edition of the “Anna Faris Is Unqualified” podcast, Slate said, “I didn’t know what to expect when I met Chris . . . He’s a giant man with huge muscles and he’s Captain America. How could we ever connect?”

Slate’s split from Dean Fleischer-Camp, her husband of nearly four years, was announced last month.

“Brain on Fire” is based on the memoir by real-life Postie Susannah Cahalan, about her recovery from a mysterious autoimmune disorder that upended her life.
