Yeah, I always envisioned a younger Demi Moore-ish actress for Carol. I guess we'll see and will still give her the chance to prove me wrong. I had the same reservations for Gwyneth Paltrow playing Pepper Potts, but she did fine.

Gwyneth Paltrow was in her mid thirties and had won an Academy Award when they made Iron Man.

Blake Lively is 23 and has appeared on a crappy soap opera on The CW.

Yes, but she was horrible in "Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow".....

Green Lantern will either be her brake out role for Blake or a nail in her acting coffin...

That history being they were kids who played together at the airfield while their dads were working. They were the same age. But with the actors they chose, Reynolds was outside playing while Lively was pooping in her diaper!

I'm terrified of Blake Lively's performance. Her showing in the trailer killed it for me.

I just don't see what the people who did the casting see in her. Of all the actresses out there who would kill for the work. I mean, what did she do to stand out during her audition?

Who knows, sometimes it isn't always how well they act.

WB owns Green Lantern.
WB owns 50% of The CW.
Blake Lively is on Gossip Girl.
Gossip Girl is on The CW.

I'm not sure that it's any more complicated than that....

Oh I am sure they went with the young, hotness factor (and probabaly capture the Gossip Girl crowd).... why they chose a blonde over a brunette is beyond me. (yes I know it can be dyed) I wish Jennifer Connely (the prime actress to play most all comic heroines) or an actress similar, would have been casted, but I guess she's too old now.

Oh well, too late now. Like I said, perhaps there is hope for GL2 after they see her dismal preformance.

There you go then. I figured it was something like her dad was a producer or something like Tori Spelling, but her work connections at WB make as much sense as anything else. Shame they didn't get somebody better. It's not like she even came from a good show.

Yeah. Jennifer Connely. Demi More. Somebody in that vein. Was that so hard?

Yes Mal,god she's worse then Drew Barrymore. just the one line in the trailer, "Hal this test..... it's important" Ugh she's going to kill the movie, I agree she is too young to begin with and she needs to be a hard ass which she cant pull off at all.

also did anyone else notice Hal talking to Carol with his mask off in the trailer about being a GL? I don't like that at all.

Yep. Didn't like that either. But...they need the romance factor.

See, I did like that. By the end of the first movie, Tom, Carol, and possibly Jim will know he's the Green Lantern. To me, it makes Hal look like he doesn't really put too much stock on the secret identity, and want his friends and family to know. Like an under cover cop- people who know him knows what he is, but it's easier to do his job and live his life if everyone else doesn't.

It's the same reason we got The Nip Tuck guy as Dr.Doom.

Also Blake Lively sounded like a robot.

Agreed. I find it annoying in the Silver Age stuff when his sister-in-law insists her husband is GL or just Carol pining for GL and not Hal. Tell her already.
If I was a GL, probably 3 or 4 people would know within a day and that would probably be it.

Just pointing out that her lines at the beginning of the trailer are most likely a spliced segment of a much longer conversation.... which when seen in the complete form it might be awesome. Her performance in the town get her this role and we won't know how good or bad she is until June... just saying

Also how many of you have acted in major blockbuster films?

Also how much screen time will she actually have?

In the end Carol will not matter.
