Samuel L. Jackson can now add "Rap Battle Champion" to his ever expanding resume.
The Marvel Cinematic Universe mainstay dropped by James Corden's Late Late Show to promote his and co-star Ryan Reynold's new film The Hitman's Bodyguard, but not through a traditional interview. Instead, Nick Fury himself geared up for a different kind of battle -- a rap battle against Corden in a new segment called "Drop the Mic." Shots were fired. Carpool Karaoke jokes were made. F- bombs were inevitably dropped, and it was all captured on camera -- you can watch the full, impressive exchange below.
While Corden targeted many parts of Jackson's ample career, his role as the Avengers-assembling S.H.I.E.L.D. head Nick Fury in particular earned several disses, among them, "This battle's over, your career is finished. Best part of Wonder Woman is, Nick Fury wasn't in it!" Jackson, of course, pointed out the obvious flaw in Corden's logic. "I don't want to be that guy, but I gots to be: Nick Fury is Marvel - Wonder Woman is DC."
Directed by Patrick Hughes, written by Tim O’Connor, and starring Ryan Reynolds, Samuel L. Jackson, Gary Oldman, Salma Hayek and Elodie Yung, The Hitman’s Bodyguard arrives in theaters on August 18.
