Gary Oldman has confirmed that a computer game adaptation of The Dark Knight, the second Batman film in Christopher Nolan's trilogy of adaptations, is set for release soon.

Speaking in a G4 interview, which is currently being hosted on Gametrailers, the Dark Knight star confirmed that a game was definitely in development and that he knew an awful lot of effort had gone into getting Batman's gldiing abilities feel suitably smooth and fluid.

Oldman, who reprises his role as Lt. James Gordon and who is set to ascend to the role of Commissioner later in the series, did not name a developer in the interview but the current speculation is that the Dark Knight game could be the secret project of Pandemic Studios and EA.

EA and Pandemic did not announce anything regarding the game at E3 2008, which coincided with the theatrical release of the film, and have not offered official comment since then.

Pandemic's other current titles include Mercenaries 2 and Lord of the Rings: Conquest, both of which are due out in Q4 this year.

Could Batman's world translate to a decent computer game, or would it be doomed to suffer like most other adaptations? Let us know what you think in the forums.
