Right from the time when Sony Pictures revealed the first Venom trailer, fans began wondering if the film studio would follow the Deadpool route and choose to go for an R rating with the film or if it will go for a PG-13 rating to cater to a wider audience.
Well now, it’s confirmed that Venom is getting a PG- 13 rating by the MPAA. The page for the film on the AMC Theaters website has listed the film with a PG-13 rating and a runtime of 112 minutes.
As the MPAA has not officially rated Venom yet, so it’s highly possible that the exhibitor website has just put the information simply a placeholder until the actual details are out.
The news of Venom getting a PG-13 rating doesn’t seem surprising considering the fact that the anti-hero exists in the Marvel Cinematic Universe alongside Spider-Man. Although it is not officially connected to the Marvel Spider-Man films or the MCU, the rating will likely keep the door open for the character to be integrated into future Marvel movies. So, this means there are chances that fans might get to see Venom face-off with Spider-Man at some point down the line.
Notably, Marvel has announced that it is launching an exclusive Venom custom edition comic book that ties into the upcoming film release. The comic book will introduce audiences to the new version of Eddie Brock and the world he inhabits. It will be released digitally on Marvel.com on Friday, September 14, reported IGN.
Directed by Ruben Fleischer, the upcoming film stars Tom Hardy as Eddie Brock, Michelle Williams, Jenny Slate, Woody Harrelson, and Riz Ahmed, who is playing the main antagonist and will become the symbiote Riot.
Written by Scott Rosenberg and Jeff Pinkner, and Kelly Marcel and Will Beal, Venom opens in theatres on October 5, 2018. Venom is currently projected to pull in between $60-70 million in its opening weekend.
