The Dark Knight producer Charles Roven gave us an official statement about the death of Heath Ledger, who plays The Joker in the anticipated film:
He was a good friend of mine, both personally and professionally. We did two films together one of which was “The Dark Knight.” He was really a great guy and an incredibly brilliant actor. Wherever he is in the universe now I hope he’s happy.
Regarding the big screen adaptation of The Flash, Roven added that they are “stuck right now with the writers strike. We’ve got a writer. We’ve got a director. We’ve got to wait until the strike is over.”
