Venom 2 may be rated-R

If we can get a rated-R movie about Joker and Deadpool, what if we could do it with Venom. According to Cinema Blend, Venom producer Matt Tolmach made a comment that he is considering giving the sequel to 2018’s Venom the rated-R treatment. The reason being is because he saw the success to DC’s recent movie Joker which was given the rating R and it earned over a billion dollars. Here is what Tolmach said:

I mean, I think you always have to think about [it], now that that works. Having said that, our movie worked really well. Our franchise exists as it is, and I don’t think anybody is looking to just say, ‘Hey, they [did it]!’ We have a place in the world. So it isn’t like suddenly everybody’s considering what to do with the rating. … I think what Joker does is it tells you that you can succeed. For a very long time, that was the narrative. And Deadpool sort of wrestled that to the turf, and then Logan, but for a long time, that was considered totally forbidden. … So you know, I think it’s the greatest thing in the world that R-rated movies are being embraced by massive audiences. And it just means that there are more opportunities for that kind of storytelling.

With movies like Logan, Deadpool and even Joker, producer Matt Tomach and director Andy Serkis are considering making Venom 2 for a much more older audience. If you didn’t know, the first Venom was released in October 2018 with a PG-13 rating. The movie met with mixed reviews from critics and even hardcore fans. What do you think about a rated-R Venom movie?

  1. I think R rated would work well for Venom. Good to see the superhero R rated movies do well at the box office, as it gives Hollywood proof that not everything has to be diluted to PG-13 to sell.

    • Yeah I agree. I guess they wanted to be PG-13 so they can bring in kids for more revenue. However, if it rated-R, the studio can do more and go all out. Personally, I would love to see Venom rated-R especially if it’s going to hint another deadly enemy.
