[[wysiwyg_imageupload:7027:]]Reports are surfacing that tickets will be made available at Wal-Mart for an advance screening for the Man of Steel.
Details are sparse at the moment, but apparently Wal-Mart will be selling tickets for a June 13th 7pm advance screening of the Man of Steel beginning May 18th starting at 8am at local stores.
It's unknown which movie theaters will be participating; however as it's said for 2D, 3D and IMAX, it must be assumed at least Regal will be one of the chains involved.
More than likely official news should be released soon enough.
It's not unheard of for Wal-Mart to sell tickets as they recently reached a deal with Ticket Master, but this might be the first time the store sells movie theater tickets.
Wal-Mart has over 8500 stores in 15 countries.
The Superman Man of Steel Fan Facebook shared the following:
ADVANCED TICKET SALES! For what is the arguably the most highly anticipated Hollywood blockbuster of the year, Wal-mart will be the location for advanced ticket sales beginning May 18, 2013 8AM (in your respective time zone,) for an EARLY screening of Man of Steel on June 13, 2013 at 7PM! Tickets will be for 2D and 3D, depending on the theaters in your area.
Wal-mart stores are still in the process of receiving the promotional info, but confirmation did come today from 3 different stores throughout the day. You can expect to hear more soon.
Update: Cosmic Book News reached out to Wal-Mart and is awaiting a response.
Update #2: Leslie from the Man of Steel Fan Facebook Page informed us that Wal-Mart stores already have the tickets in hand, and that the store employees will be wearing special promo capes for the movie as well. The tickets are said to look "really nice."
Man of Steel opens June 14th in IMAX 3D directed by Zack Snyder and starring Henry Cavill as Clark Kent/Superman and Michael Shannon as Zod.
