Venom October 5th, 2018

The highly anticipated upcoming Venom movie by Sony Pictures begins filming this Fall and will reportedly be filmed with an R-rating in mind!

Sources have explained to Collier that Sony intends to launch their own Marvel Cinematic Universe with the various characters they still own the rights to. Venom will be the first stage in this effort and will attempt to kick start an alternate timeline, separate to Marvel's own MCU (which includes Spider-Man Homecoming) and much like Deadpool and Logan, Sony thankfully seem to be giving Venom the R-rating he deserves.

Unlike the more lighthearted and family-friendly approach Marvel themselves have taken with their films, Venom is not a character that can be properly portrayed on screen with a PG-13 classification. Although a rating does not indicate whether or not a film will be successful or critically accepted, it is reassuring to see Sony seemingly taking the Venom character more seriously.

Sony's Venom movie is being described as a Horror, Action, Sci-Fi film and is currently set to hit theaters on October 5th, 2018.

It's good to here this, Venom is one of my favorite marvel villains, if not the favorite.

Same here. Always preferred him to everyone else. That being said I feel I'll be very critical of how they portray him in this film.

I guess it makes sense that the movie would be rated R.

This is really promising. I'm hoping that means we will get Carnage in it. I also hope they make Venom an Anti-Hero, and really use the incredible history of the character to make a great movie. He's one of the coolest villains ever, and in my opinion, not only my favorite Spider-Man villain, or even my favorite Marvel villain, but my favorite comic book villain, period. (followed by Deathstroke and The Joker)

The Netflix Marvel are set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and feature R-rated violence and gore, so their success could also have influenced Sony in their possible decision to make Venom R-rated.

I also highly recommend the Venom: Space Knight comic series.

IMO the first movie should explore Venoms origins, Brock's secret fight against cancer and the suicide of his wife, placing this against Kletus Cassidy's murders the movie could end with Brock and Kletus sharing a cell at Ryker's Island prison, alluding to Carnage being the antagonist for the sequel. Jackie Earle Haley would make a perfect Cassidy, unsure about whom should play Brock though...

Expecting lots of gore and graphic content.
