Last week, Marvel fans and Disney Channel fans took the internet by storm after reports surfaced that MCU star Chris Evans (Captain America/Steve Rogers) and former Wizards of Waverly Place starlet Selena Gomez (Alex Russo) were dating.

The rumors about the Princess Protection Service leading lady and the MCU Avengers franchise alum began when the 40-year-old actor “followed her [29-year-old Gomez] on Instagram. Internet spies also spotted the two leaving a studio together in Los Angeles on October 1st. Later on, they were seen at a restaurant together.”

Now, however, the dating rumors have been debunked thanks to some investigative work by fashion magazine, Elle. Their recent article notes:

…the paparazzi photos of them in the alleged same locations are actually old shots of Gomez (one is of her leaving a studio in October 2019 and another is of her leaving pilates in November 2017) and Evans (one is of him from summer 2020 when he was with then-rumored flame Lily James in London and another is of him from October 2013), appearing separately with similar backgrounds that are actually different places.

It is, however, accurate that Evans recently followed Gomez on Instagram — though it’s worth noting that she hasn’t followed the actor back at this time.

The duo’s fans, though, are ever-persistent and haven’t given up on a potential relationship between the two Hollywood stars.

Another fan of both Evans and Gomez has been literally dreaming about the two becoming a real-life couple:

Last night I had a dream where I was watching the news and they said that Selena Gomez and Chris Evans were married and my gosh it felt so real until I woke up

For now, both Evans and Gomez are officially single and have stayed busy in their post-Infinity Saga and post-Disney Channel lives, respectively. He is currently filming Disney’s Lightyear, a story based on fan-favorite Tim Allen Toy Story character Buzz Lightyear, while she was recently in the well-received series Only Murders In the Building and just finished production on Hotel Transylvania: Transformania.
