Scarlett Johansson, Joseph Gordon-Levitt...Dating?

There's been a decidedly somber tone in the MTV Newsroom (centered largely around my desk) since Ryan Gosling declared his intentions with Eva Mendes by taking her on a Disneyland date back in September. And now it looks as though another of our boyfriends may be on his way to coupledom.

Us Weekly is reporting that "50/50" star Joseph Gordon-Levitt and recently divorced Scarlett Johansson were seen making out last month in New York City. (How a development of this magnitude remained underwraps for so long is a mystery of Nancy Drew proportions...)

Anyway, an eyewitness confirmed to the mag, "They were kissing. They were very lovely." The duo was earlier spotted dinging together at NYC's Hundred Acres back in July. Sources say they met to discuss working on a project together.

Obviously, one make out does not a relationship make, and Scar's friends insist the two are keeping it breezy, so maybe we don't need to find solace in our fallback boyfriends Ben and Jerry just yet...

Do you think Scarlett and Joe would make a good couple? Sound off in the comments and on Twitter!
