The latest updates and spoilers for the live-action "Venom" film reveal the possibility of a crossover project with the "Spider-Man" movie franchise. Sony Pictures Entertainment officially announced that the upcoming Marvel film will be PG-13 and Fandango writer Erik Davis speculated that this could open the door for Venom and Spider-Man to meet again on the big screen.

Director Ruben Fleischer announced that the film has an unrated cut version in its home release. The film stars Tom Hardy as Eddie Brock, a news journalist who seeks to know the truth behind the Life Foundation's experiments.

He stumbles upon a lab and discovers that they are conducting illegal experiments on humans and symbiotes.

Venom and Spider-Man crossover teased

According to Polygon, a post from Erik Davis revealed that the reason behind the PG-13 rating of "Venom" is that it will allow Sony to capitalize of on having a crossover project with Spider-Man, and it would be difficult to achieve, having the film rated R.

It was previously reported that the film will not be part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Marvel Studios head, Kevin Feige, stated that the character is Sony's property.

Comic Book fans were hoping that film could be R-rated, similar to the "Deadpool" Movies due to its violent and darker tone. Despite the fan backlash, the PG-13 rating could benefit them as it could lead to another project between both parties in the future.

Both Venom and Spidey faced each other in Sam Raimi's "Spider-Man 3" movie and fans at that time were disappointed by how Eddie and the symbiote were portrayed in the film.

MCU actor Tom Holland expressed his desire to fight Tom Hardy's character in a project, hinting that there is a chance that they could share the same universe.

The unrated cut version coming soon

Film director Ruben Fleischer told Fandango (via Screen Rant) that he would not rule out the possibility of an unrated cut for "Venom" during its post-launch.

"I wouldn't rule anything out," Fleischer said. "We'll have to see where it lands, I guess, but I wouldn't rule anything out."

Having an unrated cut version could mean that the Marvel movie may still have a rated R effect and that comic book fans will see the brutal and gory scenes that were taken from its original theatrical release.

Eddie and his symbiote must work together to prevent the Life Foundation from creating new monsters and expose their secrets to the whole world. "Venom" will premiere in cinemas on October 5.
