Warner Brothers has decided to cancel the upcoming UK premiere of DC’s latest superhero outing Wonder Woman after this week’s terrorist attack in Manchester.


Gal Godot, Chris Pine, Robin Wright and the cast had been scheduled to walk the red carpet and speak to press on May 31st, but all activity has been called off in light of the events that unfolded after an Ariana Grande concert at the MEN Arena on Monday night.

“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 film studio said in a statement released to Deadline.

Grande, whose concert was the target, has also cancelled a string of gigs including two scheduled for London's O2 later this week, her management confirmed:

“Due to the tragic events in Manchester, the Dangerous Woman tour with Ariana Grande has been suspended until we can further assess the situation and pay our proper respects to those lost. The London O2 shows this week have been canceled, as well as all shows through June 5 in Switzerland” they said in a statement.

The tour is expected to recommence on 7th June in France.


Wonder Woman is due in UK cinemas on June 1st
