Sony’s upcoming superhero movie Venom will be PG-13.
It looks like fans clamoring for a R-rated Venom movie will not be happy about this news.
According to Variety, Venom will indeed by PG-13 but will also push the limit. The reason for the rating is to allow a possible spider-man crossover in the future.
Apparently, it’s unlikely that the spider-man villain will be the first R-rated Sony Marvel movie. Trailers for the film, which recently underwent reshoots in Los Angeles after shooting in Georgia, emphasized the horror movie elements, showing the title character as he’s about to bite a person’s head off. But some members of Sony’s brain trust believe that the film should push the very limits of PG-13 without crossing over into a higher rating.
The rating allows for spider-man to appear in future installment of the franchise especially if the upcoming movie does well.
