DreamWorks to Attempt Superhero World Record

As part of a month-long promotion for November 5th’s Megamind, Will Ferrell and DreamWorks Animation are going to attempt to break the Guiness World Record for the most superheroes in one location and, if you’re in the Los Angeles area on October 2nd, you’re encouraged to join in on the fun at LA Live downtown.

1,501 heroes are required to beat the current record and the call is sounding out for fans to dress up like their favorite "easily recognisable" superhero (one that has appeared in a published book, comic, television program or film, as stipulated by the record guidelines). The feat will be judged by official Guinness World Records Adjudicator and Spokesperson, Stuart Claxton and, if all goes according to plan, the official certificate will be presented at the conclusion of the ceremony.

As he was at this year’s Comic-Con, Ferrell himself will be on hand, sporting a full Megamind outfit and leading the event, which begins with a "Mega-breakfast" at 8am. SuperHeroHype will be there to cover the event, so dust off your spandex and help set a world record!
