Venom not taking place in the timeline that’s currently laid out within Marvel Cinematic Universe could be for the best, especially now that a Sony executive has teased the tone of the flick.
While promoting Spider-Man: Homecoming with Marvel Studios’ Kevin Feige, Sony exec Amy Pascal took a second to praise Ruben Fleischer — the director of the Venom project — which according to Fandom, will be rated R.

Zombieland — Fleischer’s first feature film — was a success both critically and commercially, grossing over $102 million worldwide with a 90% rating on the review aggregating website Rotten Tomatoes.
The comedy zombie flick stars the likes of Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg, and Emma Stone, so it would certainly be a change of pace to die-hard fans of the long-time Spider-Man nemesis.
