Andy Serkis’ upcoming Venom sequel could be R-Rated now that Sony and Marvel Studios’ Spider-Man deal has come to an end.

Shocking news hit the internet today as Sony and Marvel Studios have agreed to part ways in their agreement to work on Spider-Man films together. Various details continue to come out and the studios could come back to renegotiate a new deal.

With Sony no longer working with Marvel Studios on Spider-Man films, there is a good chance we will see Tom Holland face Tom Hardy’s Venom down the line. Before Venom earned Sony more than $800 million, there was talk that the film could be Rated-R. Variety’s Justin Kroll has now tweeted out saying that an R-Rated Venom sequel along with other Sony-Marvel films is now a possibility with Disney no longer involved:

Do you think Venom 2 will be Rated-R? Will Disney and Sony still make a deal to keep Tom Holland’s Spider-Man in the MCU? Comment below!

Venom 2 will be directed by Andy Serkis from a script written by Kelly Marcel. Here’s the official synopsis for the first film:

The evolution story of Marvel’s most enigmatic, complex and badass character – Venom! Eddie Brock (Tom Hardy) is a broken man after he loses everything including his job and fiancée. Just when his life is at its lowest, he becomes host to an alien symbiote which results in extraordinary superpowers – transforming him into Venom. Will these powers be enough for this new lethal protector to defeat great evil forces, especially against the far stronger and more weaponized symbiote rival, Riot?

Directed by Ruben Fleischer from a script written by Jeff Pinkner & Scott Rosenberg and Kelly Marcel, Venom stars Tom Hardy, Michelle Williams, Riz Ahmed, Scott Haze, Reid Scott, Jenny Slate, Ron Cephas Jones, and Woody Harrelson.

Venom is now available on Digital HD, 4K Ultra HD Combo Pack, Blu-ray Combo Pack, and DVD.
