Da udviklingen af Venom-filmen startede, så var det faktisk meningen at den skulle have en R-Rating, altså kunne der være mere ekstrem vold, men som udviklingen skred frem blev denne fjernet. Filmen endte dog alligevel med at blive en gigantisk succes, og nu er en efterfølger under udvikling, og denne kunne få R-Ratingen på grund af Joker.
I et interview med CinemaBlend fortæller produceren på filmen, Matt Tolmach, at når nu Joker formåede at trække så mange i biografen til trods for sin R-Rating, så kan det meget vel være at de også vil gøre det med Venom 2.
"I mean, I think you always have to think about [it], now that that works. Having said that, our movie worked really well. Our franchise exists as it is, and I don't think anybody is looking to just say, 'Hey, they [did it]!' We have a place in the world. So it isn't like suddenly everybody's considering what to do with the rating."
"I think what Joker does is it tells you that you can succeed. For a very long time, that was the narrative. And Deadpool sort of wrestled that to the turf, and then Logan, but for a long time, that was considered totally forbidden [...] So you know, I think it's the greatest thing in the world that R-rated movies are being embraced by massive audiences. And it just means that there are more opportunities for that kind of storytelling."
