In response to the terrorist attack early today in Brussels, Warner Bros. decided to go ahead with the “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” premiere in London but said it would cancel the red carpet press line, Variety reports.
In its announcement, the studio said: “Our hearts go out to the victims of recent terrorist attacks, their families and the communities impacted around the world. Rather than yield to terror, we’ve decided to join the film’s fans and move forward with the London premiere of ‘Batman v. Superman’ this evening.”
“Stars Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill are expected to attend the screening at Odeon Leicester Square, as is director Zack Snyder,” Variety notes.
In the U.S., the film had its New York premiere on Sunday, before the bombings. The movie is due to open this weekend in most major territories, including across much of Europe. Warner Bros. has not disclosed any other potential changes in its plans in response to the Brussels situation.
