The Dark Knight and the Man of Steel may fight in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but in the new video for Coheed and Cambria’s song “Island,” their relationship takes a different path.
The video follows a Times Square Batman who meets an amateur Superman when a tourist pays them to stage a fight. However, later fists and sparks fly as the Caped Crusader leaps to the rescue of the Man of Steel when he’s harassed by a couple of unsavory costumed critters.
“When I think of these two iconic characters, I think of opposite attraction,” explains lead singer Claudio Sanchez. “I think of myself and my wife. How two opposite ends of a spectrum can create harmony and balance. In one way or another, these characters have been paired up with like-minded love interests, the Bat and the Cat … the Alien and the Amazonian … I wanted to bring the Dark and the Light together.”
