Green Lantern gets Blake Lively as Female Lead

Lively will play Carol Ferris, who runs her father’s aerospace company and hires a cocky test pilot Hal Jordan (Reynolds), who later becomes none other than the intergalactic policeman Green Lantern. In the comics, the romance became complicated when an alien race bestowed her the power of a crystal called the Star Sapphire.

Lively beat out such actresses as Eva Green (Casino Royale), Keri Russell (Mission: Impossible III), Diane Kruger (Inglourious Basterds), and Jennifer Garner (Elektra).

“Green Lantern” is directed by Martin Campbell (Casino Royale) and is scheduled to hit theaters on June 17th, 2011.
