Debate: Imperius vs Diablo or both teaming up?

Ohio Swanson and Modestas Rickevicius brought this up. Blizzplanet asks fans: Are Imperius and Diablo fighting in this short scene from the Diablo III TV commercial, or are they both teaming up to fight someone?

This is an interesting debate. If Diablo and Imperius team up, would this mean Imperius has betrayed the High Heavens and the Angiris Council? Would they team up to destroy a common threat?

    Personally, I see Imperius hitting Diablo. However, when Ohio and Modestas brought up they are teaming up, I can actually see from the angle they both are looking at that they might be teaming up against a third character located in the direction they are looking at.
