Red Lanterns on Fringe

Red Lanterns on <i>Fringe</i>

Geoff Johns talks about the alternate comics they produced for last night's episode of Fringe.

Last night's episode of Fringe featured a storyline where the characters went to a parallel-universe where up is down, left is right, in is out… you get the idea. Also included in the storyline was the fact that Superman died in "CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS" instead of Supergirl.

This was due to a collaboration between Geoff Johns, Wildstorm and Fringe’s series finale director, Akiva Goldsman. Here's a bit of Geoff John's interview:

Geoff: "Anyone see FRINGE last night? If you did, you saw the RED LANTERN/RED ARROW cover. And maybe the bizarre SUPERMAN: THE MAN OF STEEL RETURNS in the style of Frank Miller’s BATMAN: THE DARK KNIGHT RETURNS. Or the infamous cover to CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS #7, but Supergirl’s holding Superman. Or the event that rocked the mid-90s, THE DEATH OF BATMAN. So where did these come from?

"An alternate Earth.

"For real.

"A month or so ago, I was fortunate enough to take on the job of Chief Creative Officer. That meant I was charged with bringing out characters out of the comic book pages and into the vast world of television, film, animation and video games that is DC Entertainment. One of the first calls I got was from the director of the Fringe season finale – writer/producer/director Akiva Goldsman. He was shooting a scene in an alternate world where things weren’t exactly like ours. Where even the smallest details were somewhat off. Including the comics."
