Today Walmart and Warner Bros. announced an interesting partnership that may have Superman fans flocking to the retail chain.

Starting May 18, customers at more than 3,700 Walmart stores will be able to purchase tickets to special advance screenings of Man of Steel. The screenings will take place June 13, a day before the blockbuster opens nationwide.

In addition to access to the movie, ticket holders will receive a couple of cool bonuses: an exclusive digital comic written by David Goyer and a pre-order code for Man of Steel on Blu-ray or digital download.

Learn more over at walmart.com, and, while you’re at it, check out the new Man of Steel app. (And yes, in case you were wondering, Walmart stores will be stocked with official Steel merch starting next week.)
