Venom (2018) officially rated PG-13... Sorry folks

Ticket sales for Sony's Venom movie are now becoming available and with that we have learned the run-time and official rating for the film. Unfortunately, to the dismay of many Marvel fans who were hoping for a gritty, raw and mature take on the Symbiote Anti-Hero, it appears Sony have provided a movie that constitutes nothing more than a PG-13 rating.

For the past 2 years, we've been betting and hoping the film would achieve a hard R rating - given the nature of the Venom character and the face-eating references used to describe the brutality of Venom in the new movie. Although some will argue that a PG-13 rating is no indication of the quality of a film, it does confirm that the subject matter and visuals presented will be appropriate for children over the ages of 13.

Despite other Marvel flicks geared towards adult audiences like Deadpool and Logan having performed greater than expected at the box office, it seems neither were enough to sway Sony in that direction.

The reasoning for Venom's PG-13 movie rating might have to do with future plans of incorporating or somehow crossing over with Spider-Man. However, with a sequel already planned, involving the introduction of Carnage - we don't see limiting the subject matter to that of a PG-13 rating as being enough to appropriately portray the deranged serial killer Symbiote spawn on the silver screen to the satisfaction of adult Venom fans.

The run-time for Venom was also revealed, clocking in at 1 hour and 52 minutes.

Does the PG-13 rating bother you as a fan? Or are you un-phased by this news? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below!
