New rumour points to VENOM being PG-13 rated


From the outset fans have been clamouring for Venom to be R-rated. The characters own violent nature in comics easily lends itself to a horror-inspired, gore fest.

Now a new rumour from Variety has appeared to possibly burst your bubble.

According to their sources the movie will sadly be released at the classic PG-13 rating. This is because Sony Pictures execs are hoping the film will prove to be a huge success. Their assumption appears to be a successful PG-13 Venom will convince Marvel to allow him to mix with Tom Holland’s MCU based Spider-Man.

As with every rumour we suggest you take this with a pinch of salt. This news is unconfirmed for now!

One of Marvel’s most enigmatic, complex and badass characters comes to the big screen, starring Academy Award® nominated actor Tom Hardy as the lethal protector Venom.

Venom stars Tom Hardy in the lead role and is directed by Ruben Fleischer (Zombieland) from a script by Scott Rosenberg & Jeff Pinkner. The film is due to hit cinemas some time October 2018.
