Ryan Reynolds has found his costar in DC's upcoming Green Lantern movie. Gossip Girl star Blake Lively will play Carol Ferris, aircraft magnate, skilled pilot, Hal Jordan love interest, onetime supervillain, and, lately, superpowered defender of love itself.
Lively beat out an array of contenders to play Reynolds's costar in the upcoming movie, which we previously reported included Eva Green, Keri Russell, Jennifer Garner, and Diane Kruger. The movie has experienced some minor production delays, but it is currently slated to begin production this March. Directed by GoldenEye and Casino Royale's Martin Campbell, Green Lantern is on track for release on June 17, 2011.
