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. Supporting cast includes Michelle Williams, Riz Ahmed, Scott Haze, Reid Scott and Woody Harrelson. The film is directed by Ruben Fleischer (Zombieland) from a script by Scott Rosenberg & Jeff Pinkner. Executive producers are David Householter, the legendary Stan Lee and Kelly Marcel.

The film arrives in  cinemas October 5, 2018! For more check out our Venom archive here!
