Warner Bros. Consumer Products and DC Entertainment have revealed plans to set a world record for the largest gathering of people dressed as DC Comics Super Heroes at multiple venues around the globe in 24 hours.
The DC Comics Super Hero World Record Event is due to take place on April 18th. It will kick off in Queensland, Australia with a celebration at Movie World Australia theme park, and come to a close in Los Angeles at Hollywood & Highland.
At each event, fans dressed as DC Comics Super Heroes will gather to celebrate with interactive games and activities before formally attempting to set the world record.
Cities taking part will include Birmingham, Cardiff, Kaohsiung in Taiwan, Lille, London, LA, Lyon, Madrid, Manila, Mexico City, Paris, Queensland, Rome, Sao Paulo and Warrington.
To participate in setting the world record, DC Comics fans must dress from head to toe as an instantly recognised Super Hero that has been featured in a DC Comics published book, TV programme or film. Both homemade costumes, as well as official costumes from licensees and official event retail partners will be considered, as long as they are a full representation of the Super Hero and are as close to the original DC Comics’ Super Hero’s costume as possible.
The exclusive retail partner in the US is Hot Topic.
"Warner Bros. Consumer Products is thrilled to team up with partners around the world to set the world record for the most people dressed as DC Comics Super Heroes," said Brad Globe, president, WBCP. "We invite fans of all ages to come out for this exciting family event and don their capes, cowls and masks to represent their favourite DC Comics Super Hero."
Leading up to the event, WBCP, DCE and local sponsors and organisers will be holding a number of photo contests and sweepstakes for fans.
