Can “Spider-Man” Leaving The MCU Land “Venom 2” An R-Rating?

Though the first big-screen Venom adventure movie was a breakout commercial success, many felt the film was a little tonally confused. After all, Venom is supposed to blur the line between villain and antihero, disposing of his foes through brutal and occasionally gruesome means. And yet, the first film barely contained a speck of blood, which some felt marked a missed opportunity. Was Venom ultimately hampered by its tame, studio-imposed limitations?

Sadly, a PG-13 is the small price to pay for standing adjacent to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. At least, that’s how Sony came to see it. According to a report from Variety’s Justin Kroll, Sony felt that slapping Venom with the R as initially planned would do more harm than good, seeing as the opportunities for MCU crossovers hung in the balance.

In one quick motion, the former MVP turns his back on his opponent, again to create separation. He switches his handle to his shooting hand, and off it goes, a one-legged three-point attempt straight out of a video game trailer.

As it turns out, the “one-legged three” as demonstrated in the above clip, is something James Harden hopes to implement this upcoming NBA season, even though on the surface, it resembles a circus shot that should only work against rec league defenders. Continue reading
