The Green Light
So whoever thought one of my serious crushes Blake Lively would be typecast as the dumb, seasonally bad girl heiress Serena Van der Woodsen (of Gossip Girl), you just need to swallow yourself now. NOOOOW! Yes my friends, Blake is going damsel-in-distress this time as Carol Ferris, apple of the eye of Hal Jordan aka Green Lantern.
Aside from her hilarious-cum-stupid stint in Saturday Night Live, here she is again proving how versatile she could go. If Blake was an actress in the Philippines, she could’ve gone wearing scanty attires and appearing in no less than three racy men’s magazines if you know what I mean. And astonishingly, who else might be Green Lantern but, oh noes not again, Ryan Reynolds?!! I thought he was doing Deadpool.
“Green Lantern” was hatched in 1940. Hal Jordan, a second-generation test pilot, is an ordinary man who has been charged with defending a sector of the universe with a mystical green ring. His love interest Carol Ferris is a pilot and administrator in civilian life. [Zap2It]
As you may know, Lively’s character Ferris has an alter ego Star Sapphire (say hello to cheesy names) who wears pink like nuts. That’s how I remember her in Justice League. Domniatrix shares this information about the anti-hero character:
An alien race of female warrors, the Zamorans, created a mystical jewel called the star sapphire. The jewel seeks out a woman who then becomes the new Zamoran queen, sort of like buddhists looking for the new dalai lama only with sexier clothing. Problem is, the star sapphire actually possesses the woman, turning her into a power-hungry dictatrix. Also, for some reason she seems to want to seize control of a green lantern to be her mate / sex toy. Probably because the Zamorans are the female half of the Guardians Of Oa, the old guys who created the Green Lantern Corps and who have apparently gone through a pretty messy divorce. “The universe is mine!” “No, honey, you can have the starship, but the universe belongs to me!” [Dominatrix]
“New dalai lama only with sexier clothing?!” Really now? Okay, reviewing everything that I just said, I think Blake’s just gonna live up to being a male fantasy. Sheez.
The movie’s set to be viewed June 17, 2011.
