So how many turned out? According to the Guinness Book of World Records, 1,580.

The event was held to promote the premiere of DreamWorks Animation’s “Megamind,” which is expected to be released in 3D Nov. 5th.

Will Ferrell, one of the voices of “Megamind,” encouraged the crowd to stay in character. The movie also stars Brad Pitt, Tina Fey and Jonah Hill.

“We’d love it if you guys could break another world record and stay in your costumes for the entire month if that’s possible,” Ferrell said. “No showers… commit. We won’t have a way to really monitor it so it will be the honor system, but we trust you guys,” he added.

The gathering of superheroes beat the old record by 79 superheroes.
