Do you think Blake has what it takes to be a superhero’s girlfriend?
From “Gossip Girl” to super girl! Blake Lively has been cast as the female lead in the upcoming Green Lantern movie, alongside star Ryan Reynolds, according to The Hollywood Reporter‘s Heat Vision blog. A far cry from the Serena we’re used to seeing, Blake will play Carol Ferris, the woman in charge of the aerospace company that hires Ryan’s character. And Blake had some stiff competition! She reportedly beat out heavy-hitters like Jennifer Garner and Keri Russell for the big role.
Even though the role called for an older, Blake reportedly made enough of an impression on the studio for them to change their mind. We can’t wait to see what she brings to the big screen! Congrats, Blake. This is a big deal.
