One of Marvel’s greatest and most complex characters is all set to take center stage when Eddie Brock, played by Tom Hardy becomes the host for alien symbiote ‘Venom’. Twisted, dark, unpredictable and unstoppable, ‘Venom’ is a character that limits to no boundaries and the filmmakers have left no stone unturned to make ‘Venom’ the biggest Spider-Man spinoff. If reports are to be believed, the vehicle built for the Iraq war has been used in the film as part of a very crucial segment. This beast of a vehicle is not available for use outside of the military and is termed as MRAP, which stands for Mine Resistance Ambush Personnel. Sean Ryan, the car coordinator was responsible to source and supervise all the moving vehicles in the film.

The black matte with dark grey interior MRAP securely carries the symbiotes into the Life Foundation.  Ryan and his team modified the vehicle with fake doors and body, and transferred the engine to run on peanut oil. The fiberglass body version crafted by Ryan and his team made the MRAP easier to maneuver, since a real MRAP weighs more than 10,000 pounds. Quite literally, the filmmaker’s wanted to make ‘Venom’ the biggest film and we can’t wait for the film to release. Apart from Tom hardy who plays the protagonist as Venom, the film also stars Michelle Williams, Riz Ahmed, Scott Haze, and Reid Scott.

The film will hit the big screen on 5th October 2018.
