Bad news guys, Tom Hardy’s Venom probably won’t be R-rated
It seems Tom Hardy’s Venom may not be as extreme as we had previously thought.
The director of the upcoming Sony movie previously teased that it will be “more violent” than other Marvel fare, though a new report suggests otherwise.
According to Variety, Sony feels that Venom should “push the limits” of PG-13, and that it is “unlikely” that it will be R-rated.
The report claims that it will give Venom leeway should he crossover with Tom Holland’s Spider-Man and the rest of the Marvel Cinematic Universe down the line. After all, the MCU is much more family-friendly.
Director Ruben Fleischer previously explained that Venom will be a “much grittier, grounded, complicated character” and that “there’s no heroes in this movie”.
Meanwhile, Hardy has been opening up about playing Eddie Brock/Venom, explaining: “To me it’s exciting, because it’s a double act.
“The character has an ethical framework, the alien by virtue of coming from another planet doesn’t have the same ethical framework, and they have to work out how to be together so they click.”
He added: “He now has a beast who lives rent-free in him. It could be like somebody who’s contracted a tropical disease and gone mad.
“It’s like acting out mental illness in some aspects, of which I have a fair understanding, having had a certain amount of mental health problems of my own, which are relevant, being an addict. So I might as well f**king use it.”
Venom will be released on October 5.
