VENOM Will Get a PG-13 Rating, Hoping That MCU Characters will Crossover in Future Films

For years we’ve been told that Marvel Studios’ MCU character would not crossover with Sony Pictures’ separate cinematic universe that they are building. But, that doesn’t mean Sony Pictures can’t hope for something a little more. They would love to see characters from the MCU eventually crossover with their future movies!

They are already taking steps to try to pave the way if it ever does happen. One of those steps is to ensure their first film there cinematic universe, Venom, gets a PG-13 rating. If it got an R-rating, Marvel Studios might not want to play ball with them later on down the road. Variety reports:

Disney To Cancel “Costly” Non-Family Friendly Film Projects at Fox But Will Release Films Already Completed


Thanks to the Wall Street Journal, we have some additional insight into what Disney might be planning after the purchase of Fox is complete. There are definitely some big changes that will be coming to Fox, but as of right now everyone at the studio is supposed to just be moving forward as if nothing is happening.

“Fox is obligated to keep acting as if it will survive, people who work at the studio say, which means making movies and developing new ideas with no certainty as to what Disney will end up doing with them.”

That obviously can’t be easy to do because people are going to lose their jobs in the process of this merger.

A lot of fans have been wondering if some of the changes will affect the films that Fox is currently developing. The recent reports says that Disney has plans to release any movies from the studio that are completed or in the middle of production when Disney’s acquisition is complete. That means you can expect all those Marvel films in production to be released like X-Men: Dark Pheonix and The New Mutants.

The X-MEN: DARK PHOENIX Will Reportedly Go Through 3 Months of Reshoots!

Update: X-Men: Dark Pheonix will reportedly not take three months to shoot. Collider reports that sources close to the production of Dark Phoenix say that this report is “erroneous.” The film is going back for additional shooting, but it’s only scheduled to last two and a half weeks, which is normal.

Reshoots for big-budget tentpole films in Hollywood is normal. What isn’t normal is when those reshoots will last three months! According to a recent report, director Simon Kinberg‘s X-Men: Dark Phoenix is rumored to undergo three months of reshoots, which means Fox hates the current cut of the film that was turned in.

If that’s true, the movie must be a huge mess! The initial principal photography of the film last year lasted three and a half months, so with three months of reshoots being planned… are they looking to reshoot the whole movie!? That’s just crazy.

Warner Bros. Has Reportedly Approached James Gunn About Directing a DC Film


Yesterday we learned that director James Gunn was negotiating his possible exit as the director of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. It’s said his script will be used for the film and that there’s a chance he could come back to direct a future Marvel movie in the event they officially don’t bring him back to direct Vol. 3.

It’s also being reported that Gunn has been approached by several top producers and executives in Hollywood to write and direct a number of big film projects that the studios are looking to develop. They are excited to work with Gunn! One studio executive said:

“Most people feel his comments were coming out of his brand of comedy [at the time he made them]. Having an inappropriate sense of humor shouldn’t be a crime.”

One of the studios looking to hire Gunn is said to be Warner Bros. They would love to get him on board to direct one of their DC film properties! As of right now, though, Gunn is unable to entertain any offers until the “Disney matter is 100 percent resolved.”

It will certainly be interesting to see how this all plays out and what is store for Gunn’s future. But Marvel’s loss could be DC’s gain. Would you like to see Gunn direct a DC film? If so, which character or characters would you want to see him play with?
