“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,” a statement read
Warner Bros. has canceled the press interviews on the red carpet of the ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” premiere in London Tuesday after terrorist attacks in Brussels have left dozens dead.
The premiere itself will still go on, however.
“Our hearts go out to the victims of recent terrorist attacks, their families and the communities impacted around the world,” Warner Bros. said in a statement. “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.”
A series of terrorist attacks killed dozens in Brussels on Tuesday morning, with two explosions at its international airport and one at a subway station.
Brussels officials raised the terror threat level to four, the highest level. They also shut down all public transportation in the city and advised locals to stay indoors; security was heightened throughout Europe in the wake of the attacks.
The bombings came after the arrest of Salah Abdeslam, the main surviving suspect in last November’s deadly terrorist attacks in Paris.
