NEW YORK (AP) — The London premiere of “Batman v Superman” was scaled back Tuesday following the terrorist attacks in Brussels.

Warner Bros. said in a statement that “our hearts go out to the victims” and others affected by the deadly explosions at the Belgium city’s main airport and subway. But the studio said it would go forward with the Tuesday-night premiere “rather than yield to terror.”

However, interviews on the red carpet were canceled.

The Leicester Square premiere of “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” follows events in New York and Mexico City.
