The upcoming Venom will not follow in the footsteps of Deadpool. Sony’s upcoming Spider-Man spinoff will be rated PG-13.
As reported by Collider (and verified by AMC), the nearly two-hour long film will not be rated R. For the fans that are disappointed with the rating, the truth of the matter is that this is a move to keep the character available for a potential Marvel crossover.
Sony has plans to expand the Spider-Verse so it would make sense to keep the film in align with the Spider-Man movies.
Venom opens October 5th
