Looks like Warner Bros. and director Martin Campbell have finally found the female lead for their Green Lantern movie, and Hal Jordan’s lady love Carol Ferris will be played by none other than Blake Lively, star of the CW’s hit “Gossip Girl,” The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants and its sequel.
Ferris is the one who hires hot-shot test pilot Hal Jordan, played by Ryan Reynolds, to her father’s aerospace company, which she’s running, before he gets the ring to become Earth’s Green Lantern. As the Heat Vision Blog mentions, Carol ultimately becomes the villain Star Sapphire, although there’s no word whether there might be some hint of that in the first movie.
Rumors had been swirling for the past month about a possible lead with Keri Russell and Jennifer Garner among those being talked to for the role. The movie is scheduled to start shooting in March.
