"Batman v Superman's" London premiere will move forward, but the red carpet event will not.

Following the Brussels Attacks, Warner Bros. will move forward with the London premiere of "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice," but has cancelled the red carpet event.

Warner Bros. released an official statement about the cancellation, which reads, "Our hearts go out to the victims of recent terrorist attacks, their families and the communities impacted around the world. 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."

Early Tuesday morning, Brussels, Belgium suffered terrorist attacks that killed dozens and injured many more. Europe has now entered a heightened state of alert. Nevertheless, crowds have gathered in London's Leicester Square, where the premiere will take place. Security has begun to clear the area, so that only ticketed guests may enter.

Directed by Zack Snyder and starring Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, Jesse Eisenberg, Laurence Fishburne, Amy Adams and others, "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" hits screens on March 25.
