Crowds gather in Metropolis for 'Superman Festival'

Posted: Updated:

People from all over the world have descended on Metropolis, Illinois this weekend.

As you probably know, Superman calls Metropolis his home and the town has been enjoying the benefits of the Superman Festival for 35 years in a row now.

Saturday morning, actor Margot Kidder will hold a meet and great.

Kidder played Lois Lane in the Superman films 1-4.

Sunday, they will be going for a world record attempt for the largest gathering of people dressed as the "Man of Steel."

They will need at least 438 people to break that record.

The record was set just a couple of days ago outside of Chicago by a group of employees at the Sears headquarters.
