September 18, 2010: Will Ferrell to Attempt Costumed Heroes World Record in Los Angeles

Megamind Actor Will Ferrell is attempting to break a world record by gathering the most people in superhero costumes on October 2, 2010 at 8 AM at the L.A. Live theater. Here's some additional information from the original report at Moviefone:

    A press release is advising fans to arrive dressed to impress, as a "recognizable superhero that has appeared in a published book, comic, television program or film, as stipulated by the record guidelines." What the press release doesn't tell you is that if you dress like Dazzler or Jubilee people will laugh at you. An official judge and Guinness rep will bear witness to the shenanigans to make sure all the costumes count and no one pokes an eye out.

    It's no surprise that DreamWorks Animation has organized the publicity stunt in celebration of "MegaMonth" -- dedicated to Mega-events across the U.S. It's all honoring the release of Tom McGrath's animated superhero comedy starring Ferrell, Brad Pitt, Jonah Hill and Tina Fey. Ferrell plays the title character, Megamind, a super villain who tries to conquer Metro City but has met his match in the city's hero, Metro Man (Pitt). The two battle it out until fate flips things around for the fiendish foe, and a new villain (Hill) causes Megamind to reconsider superhero status.

If you're going to be in the L.A. area on October 2nd, break out the cape and be a part of a Guiness world record. Thanks to super-member Chris P. Bacon for the heads-up on this story.
