R-Rated MCU Films Possible, But No Venom

Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige has previously remained steadfast to the company’s commitment to keep the movies within the Marvel Cinematic Universe within a family-friendly zone – no R rated features.

Now though it looks like he may be softening his position as, during an interview with Allocine, Feige was asked about the possibility of an R-rated Marvel movie. He responded: “Currently we don’t work on R-Rated movies, it’s not out of the question but currently, no.”

He also shot down rumors of any non-“Spider-Man” films at Sony becoming part of the MCU, especially the “Venom” film currently in the works. He says: “No plans to include [Venom] in the MCU right now. That is Sony’s project.”

The MCU is currently in production on “Avengers: Infinity War” with the Russos posting a new shot from the set today which you can see below. A fourth “Avengers” and the “Ant-Man” sequel begin production in July and will continue throughout much of 2017, while “Captain Marvel” will shoot in the first half of next year says The DGA. Sony’s “Venom” film begins shooting in September.
