The comic book adaptation was highly anticipated among fans, and many praised the casting decision that led to Reynolds landing the role of Hal Jordan/Green Lantern.

After the casting news, Reynolds first met his co-star and on-screen love interest, Blake Lively. According to Elle, the two made their first public appearance together at the 2010 Comic-Con in San Diego. At that time, Reynolds and Lively were both involved with other people. Reynolds was married to Scarlett Johansson, while Lively was dating Penn Badgley, her friend and Gossip Girl co-star. Later that same year, Reynolds would split from Johansson, while Lively would dissolve her romance with Badgley.

Reynolds later revealed that their romantic relationship started after the two were good friends, saying, “It was funny because for about a year after Green Lantern had come and gone, all that stuff, we were both single. We went on a double date. She was on a date with another guy and I was on a date with another girl. That was the most awkward date for that respective party because we were just like fireworks.”

Reynolds went on to describe how “we were such good friends for so long and we both got to know each other as friends. It didn’t click for a good year and a half.” The two dated for a little more than a year before tying the knot in late 2012.
