The Guinness Book of World Records presented Will Ferrell with a certificate for breaking the world record for "largest superhero gathering" last Saturday at the Staples Center. In a promotion for Dreamworks' upcoming movie Megamind, more than 1,500 people were needed to break the previous record, and they officially reached 1,580 that day. According to World Records Academy, the record was last set in August 2009 by a New Hampshire children's hospital.
