Sony's Venom Movie Is Jumping On The R-Rated Bandwagon

Sony’s Venom Movie Is Jumping On The R-Rated Bandwagon

Written by

With Venom’s first outing on the big screen in Spider-man 3 seen by many as a huge flop, it would seem that Sony is set to redeem themselves as they recently indicated that the new Venom solo movie might be an R-rated sci-fi horror.

Venom Movie To Jump On The R-Rated Bandwagon

It’s likely that Sony made this decision after witnessing the success of both the R-rated Deadpool and Logan movies. Fans might be getting the Venom movie they have always wanted as the upcoming solo movie is classified by MyEntertainmentWorld as an “Action/Horror/Sci-Fi” which sounds like the perfect description of the Venom franchise.

The studio is hoping to kickstart their own cinematic universe separate from Marvel. By having their universe R-rated Sony should be able to differentiate themselves from the more kid-friendly Disney one. Of course, this universe would need to exist without everybody’s favourite neighbourhood Spider-Man as Sony has a deal with Disney that ensures that Spider-Man only appears in their Marvel Cinematic Universe. This does not mean that Sony couldn’t make it work. They still have the license to quite a few Marvel characters, including Black Cat and Silver Sable, which are also rumoured to have their own spin-off movies in the works.

While it might seem like a very risky move, it could potentially pay off if handled correctly.
