In partnership with Saatchi & Saatchi NY, Walmart kicked off its back-to-school TV ad campaign with ads featuring some of America’s favorite superheroes--and their kid alter egos.

The campaign, including this anthem “Heroes” spot replete with Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman, was directed by feature filmmaker Marc Forster (Monster’s Ball, Finding Neverland, Stranger than Fiction, The Kite Runner) via production house Tool of North America.
