Who Will Play Carol Ferris In Green Lantern?

When Warner Bros. and director Martin Campbell hired Ryan Reynolds to play Hal Jordan we knew that we'll be hearing more interesting casting for the project. There were some rumors that Jackie Earl Haley (Watchmen) could be playing the film's villain Sinestro. Although we haven't heard much about the female lead.

Latino Review is reporting a list of possible actresses for the female lead in Green Lantern. While they haven't confirmed one actress they have five candidates for the role of Carol Ferris. Carol is the love interest of Hal Jordan and would eventually become Star Sapphire. The actresses include Eva Green (Casino Royale, Kingdom of Heaven), Diane Kruger (Inglourious Bastards, Troy), Keri Russell (MI3), Jennifer Garner (Juno, Alias) and Blake Lively (Gossip Girl).

Eva Green and Diane Kruger might the two best choices because they have great dramatic talent, they've been apart of large films, also name recognition in both domestic and international film markets.

I have to admit Keri Russell would be interesting in the role since we haven't seen her all over the place.

While you'd think Blake Lively would be the worst choice in the group it's actually Jennifer Garner. Considering her performances in both Daredevil and Elektra I wouldn't want to see her in another comic book film ever again, she's lost the right. When it comes to Blake I've never seen an episode of Gossip Girl and I believe neither have people interested in comic book films. I find modern high school soap operas the most vapid things on television.

I believe Latino Review's source could right with those names but there are a bunch of female characters in the Green Lantern Corps. Which could end up appearing in the film they include Arisia, Boodikka and Katma Tui.
