'Gossip Girl' actress Blake Lively is set to star in new comic book movie 'Green Lantern'.
The 22-year-old blonde star is being lined-up to play the love interest of the main character Hal Jordan - who is played by Ryan Reynolds.
However, Blake reportedly faces stiff competition for the part as Jennifer Garner, Diane Kruger and Eva Green are also in the running.
A source said: "Blake would be amazing in this role. She has a busy 2010 promoting 'The Town', but she would love to play a part in a superhero film."
'Green Lantern' tells the story of Hal Jordan, an ordinary man chosen by an alien to receive an energy ring that can be used to protect the planet.
Filming is due to begin in 2010, with a rumoured summer 2011 release date.
Martin Cambell, who previously worked on 'Casino Royale', is to direct the movie, leading some to speculate that former Bond girl Eva may be his choice for the role.
