The 'Gossip Girl' beauty is said in competition with Jennifer Garner, Keri Russell and two other girls to play the love interest of Ryan Reynolds' character.

Words on the street, "Gossip Girl" star Blake Lively could join Ryan Reynolds in the cast ensemble for "Green Lantern". According to Latino Review, the 22-year-old beauty who has just appeared in "The Private Lives of Pippa Lee" is among five candidates who have a chance to take the role of Carol Ferris, the love interest of Hal Jordan/Green Lantern.

However, Lively would not get that role easily as she has to compete with Eva Green, the James Bond's girl in 2006 "Casino Royale", and Jennifer Garner, the depicter of female international assassin in "Elektra". Then, "Mission: Impossible 3" star Keri Russell and Diane Kruger who played Helen in "Troy" are reportedly also named on the list of contenders to be the leading lady in the upcoming superhero flick.

On the script, Carol is described as the daughter of aerospace mogul Carl Ferris. "She works for her father's company Ferris Air, got an MBA, and has a lifetime crush on Hal Jordan," Latino Review additionally reported.

"Green Lantern" centers on Hal Jordan, an ordinary man who was chosen by a dying alien named Abin Sur to receive a green energy-powered ring used for protecting the planet. Beside Ryan Reynolds who has been slated to star as the titular character, no one has been officially announced as part of the cast for the movie. Martin Campbell will serve behind the cameras, while Warner Bros. Pictures eyes to release the film in the U.S. on June 17, 2011.
