James Corden has that ’90s rap and dancing thing down, but the “Late Late Show” host is pretty lacking when it comes to super-strength. On Thursday, Corden, his bandleader Reggie Watts, and actress Jenny Slate made a music video in honor Marvel’s “Venom.”
In the video, which will take viewers and hip-hop fans back a good 25 years, Corden is tasked with taking on the dual role of Eddie Brock and Venom. He’s fine as Brock, but a bit lost as Venom — especially when he’s tasked with performing a backflip.
Oh yeah, and he doesn’t look quite as good as Tom Hardy (CGI) does in that symbiote suit.
For her part, Slate turns the whole thing up a few degrees, reminiscent of TLC’s Lisa “Left Eye” Lopez. She’s also the reason that Corden ends up on crutches.
Watch “Spittin’ Venom” via the video above.
“Venom” is out in theaters now.

Decades of big screen Marvel adaptations demand a long, ranked list. This is that list
This article used to say something like, "It's always a good time to rank all the Marvel movies!" And, well, I guess that means it's an extra good time right now since there's nothing much to do during the coronavirus lockdown, which have resumed this week here in California. In any case, it's also always a good time to argue about which Marvel movies are best and worst, so let's do that.
