Blake Lively on her role in “Green Lantern”: “As soon as I got the role, I was quickly humbled about how naïve I was”

In Green Lantern, actress Blake Lively is starring in her first big-budget franchise film.

Lively admits she was unfamiliar with the comic book series prior to filming. She said that she “actually knew nothing about Green Lantern, and I imagined that nobody else in the world knew anything about Green Lantern. And as soon as I got the role I was quickly humbled about how naïve I was. It’s really exciting that I didn’t know anything about it because then my nephews don’t know anything about it. And to introduce a character to a younger generation, you have a lot more freedom and you’re not being compared to all the different incarnations that you’ve seen before, like the more commonly known superheroes.”

The star of The Town and  TV’s Gossip Girl, plays Carol Ferris, fighter pilot and girlfriend of Hal Jordan (Ryan Reynolds), had never worked with special effects involving a blue screen but she embraced the experience. “A lot of the stuff we did was with blue screen, and that’s very different because I’m used to being in scenes and having a good idea what it’s going to look like when the finished product comes out. But to be existing in a world that doesn’t even have life until we wrap? That you’re shooting for six months and then the movie starts is something very different, and makes it that much more exciting when you see it. Seeing those ten minutes of footage, I now feel like a fan of the movie whether I was in it or not.”
