“Green Lantern” hits movie theaters today, bringing the longtime DC Comics superhero to the big screen for the very first time. Ryan Reynolds stars as Hal Jordan, a cocky fighter pilot who reluctantly accepts a powerful ring from a dying alien that transforms him into a member of the Green Lantern Corps, an intergalactic peace-keeping force with the ability to create wildly imaginative constructs and bend matter to their own willpower’s greatest extent. “Gossip Girl” and “The Town” actress Blake Lively stars alongside Reynolds as Carol Ferris, a fellow pilot, one of Hal’s closest confidants and, of course, his potential love interest.
Needless to say, the very concept of “Green Lantern” raises a lot of questions. Our pals at Splash Page have answered more than their fair share from identifying Hal’s greatest foes to pinpointing “Green Lantern” Easter Eggs. But today, we’re asking Reynolds and Lively different questions. Like, is Serena van deer Woodsen a stupid name? Does Reynolds have better abs than Ryan Gosling?
