Film bosses at Warner Bros. have scrapped their promotional plans for Wonder Woman in London in the wake of the deadly bomb blast in Manchester that cost 22 people their lives.
The Wonder Woman premiere in England’s capital and countless junkets have been cancelled.
Announcing the news in a statement, a studio spokesman writes: “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.”
Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, and Robin Wright were expected to be part of the promotional events in London.
The film will still open in the UK on June 2.
The movie world marked the terror attack on the Manchester Arena on Monday by staging a minute of silence at the Cannes Film Festival on Tuesday, while racing driver Lewis Hamilton pulled out of a planned appearance at the festival as a mark of respect to the victims killed in the bombing.
He was scheduled to attend the launch of the new Cars movie.
