Plans to roll out the red carpet for the star-studded movie premiere of “Wonder Woman” have been scrapped following the bombing in Manchester, England that left 22 people dead.

Warner Bros announced in a statement Wednesday that the London event had been cancelled “in light of the current situation” after a suicide bomber struck Monday night just outside of an Ariana Grande concert at the Manchester Arena. (RELATED: Police: 19 Confirmed Dead After Explosion At Ariana Grande Concert In Manchester)

The cancellation is the latest in a string of entertainment cancellations in the United Kingdom, such as the band Blondie scrapping their concert Tuesday night in London.

Ariana Grande has postponed her “Dangerous Woman” tour in Europe through June 5, according to her management.

“Wonder Woman” hits theaters worldwide June 2, 2017.
