Most women just dream of dating Superman, but The Big Bang Theory actress Kaley Cuoco actually is! Multiple reports confirm that the starlet is in the beginning of a new relationship with Man of Steel star Henry Cavill.

An insider revealed to Us Weekly that Henry, 30, is a “massive Big Bang Theory fan” and “has always wanted to date her.” Kaley, 27, may have already hinted at the relationship when she posted a photo of herself staring in admiration at a Man of Steel poster, urging her fans to see the summer blockbuster.

Everyone go see "man of steel". It's fantastic in every single way. — Kaley Cuoco (@KaleyCuoco) June 15, 2013

The British hunk recently ended his 10-month relationship with actress Gina Carano in May and Kaley has been single since she split with musician Bret Bollinger this past winter. Looks like Kaley and Henry are through with being single and are ready to mingle. “They are totally hot for each other,” another source told Us Weekly.

Both stars are known for being private about their personal lives, so it might be a while before we see any photos of the two together. Kaley managed to date her Big Bang Theory co-star Johnny Galecki for two years before anyone found out—and that was after they broke up—so the actress knows how to keep things under wraps.

As for Henry's dating preferences, the movie star told People in June, "What really matters is that people be themselves. If women are confident and happy, they are going to attract someone who is like-minded rather than trying to be something else." Hmmm... he might have just described Kaley. Looks like Superman has found his leading lady, Lois Lane.
