Blake Lively Cast in the Green Lantern Opposite Ryan Reynolds 2010-01-11 10:30:00

Blake Lively Is the Green Lantern's Leading Lady

Serena van Der Woodsen has been kind of bugging me lately, so I'm happy to report that soon we'll get a chance to see her alter ego somewhere besides NYC. Blake Lively is set to star opposite Ryan Reynolds in the highly anticipated Green Lantern. Lively will play Carol Ferris, who hires the test pilot (and secret Green Lantern persona) Hal Jordan for her father's aerospace company. In the comic, the two embark on a romance, but things get complicated when she is handpicked by an alien race and turns into more of a supervillain, pitting her against the Green Lantern.

Ferris is described as having her MBA, and rumors mentioned everyone from Keri Russell to Diane Kruger to Jennifer Garner for the role. I'm surprised to see the younger Lively beat out these women for the part, but I think she'll make for a good damsel in distress if the script calls for it. Plus, I'm sure Lively wouldn't be shy about slipping into a spandex suit.

Do you think Lively is a good choice for the film? Do you think she and Ryan Reynolds will make a good onscreen couple?

BAD CHOICE im going to see this movie, whenever it gets release, but ima be watching it thinkin that the main character is either Keri Russell - Diane Kruger or Jennifer Garner, NOT HER!

I don't understand why they keep casting blondes for all these brunette roles. Is there a lack of brunettes working in Hollywood? First Kate Bosworth as Lois Lane, then Siena Miller as Baroness and now Blake Lively as Carol Ferris. Arrrrrgggggghhhhhh. Besides does anyone buy Blake Lively as the head of an aerospace company? It's as probable as Denise Richards was as nuclear scientist. Don't get me wrong I like Blake in Gossip Girl and the Pants movies, but I hate having to suspend that much disbelief.

Seeing as I don't consider the Green Lantern to be a serious movie (or Ryan Reynolds a serious actor), I think she would fit right in!

Bad choice. Too young, not believable as an aerospace executive because of her age and "look" (not just b/c she's pretty, but her specific look doesn't say executive), too young for the male lead and can't really act.

Disappointed. I think Diane Kruger would have been an excellent choice.

Plus, she seems a tad too young for Ryan Reynolds. I know she is older than her character on Gossip Girl, but she is only 22 or 23 i think. I think it would've been better if they went with someone who was in the 25-30 range.

Not happy about this news...she is beautiful but she can't act and she has an annoying speech impediment (like amrita said)

well, seeing as blake lively couldn't act her way out of a paper bag, yes, i guess i am disappointed to see blake and her speech impediment snagging such a high-profile role. I guess it's just a further nod to placate that segment of geeky fanboys who would rather see a hot vapid chick than a nuanced female character in a comic-book-adaptation.
