Warner Bros. has decided to cancel Wonder Woman‘s UK premiere following a terrorist attack in Manchester, England. The incident, which occurred at an Ariana Grande concert, left 22 people dead and 59 injured, including young children.
A Warner Bros. spokesperson confirmed the cancellation to Screen Rant, stating, “Our thoughts are with those affected by the recent tragedy in the UK. In light of the current situation, we will not be proceeding with our plans for the Wonder Woman premiere and junket activities in London.”
The attacker died in the attack, but local police and armed forces are still searching for accomplices and other individuals that are possibly tied to the incident.
The next addition in the DC Extended Universe was recently deemed the summer’s most anticipated film, beating out the likes of Spider-Man: Homecoming and Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales.
Starring Gal Gadot, Wonder Woman tells the story of the Amazon princess who, after discovering the body of American fighter pilot Steve Trevor washed ashore on Themyscira, sets out to bring an early end to World War I.
Opening June 2, the film stars Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Robin Wright, Lucy Davis, Lisa Loven Kongsli, Danny Huston, Elena Anaya, Ewen Bremner, Saïd Taghmaoui and David Thewlis.
