Batman kisses Superman in sweet Coheed and Cambria video

bat-kiss-r6

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.”

Very nice, and creative interpretation.

Coheed & Cambria are still together?!?

it’s sad that someone would ever have to ask if a band as phenominal as Coheed and Cambria is still together.
Yes. They’re still together. They just released their 8th album, and everything they do is brilliant.

Apollo and Midnighter!!

(Man, BVS:DOJ@L&O?CSI#Los Angeles viral marketing has gotten weird…)
