Walmart’s “Spider-Verse” Screenings Dazzle Excited Crowds
Walmart was thrilled to partner with Marvel, McDonald’s and Sony for free exclusive screenings of visually-dazzling Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse in Atlanta, Chicago, and Houston. Hosted by DJ Drama (Atlanta), Paul Wall (Houston) and Tarik Cohen (Chicago), the hot ticket event attracted seas of excited kiddos for a fun-filled Saturday morning at the movies.
In Spider-Man, you see the limitless possibilities of the Spider-Verse where more than one person can wear the mask and make a positive impact. For the first time in its storied history, Marvel introduced an Afro-Latino superhero to its diversity-starved audience–a gifted teen named Miles Morales who does spectacular things once he learns to believe in himself.
In 2018, Miles Morales represents a major cultural step forward and we applaud Marvel for showing us superheroes come in all shapes, sizes and colors! Walmart prides itself in cultivating an inclusive workplace that celebrates the diversity of its associates, suppliers, customers and the communities it serves.
