Over 30 people were killed in the terror attacks and more than 100 injured
Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice director Zack Snyder paid tribute to victims of the Brussels attacks at the film’s London premiere this evening (March 22).
He asked for a moment of silence at the Leicester Square screening, which also saw all red carpet interviews with the movie’s stars cancelled, reports Digital Spy.
“On behalf of Warner Bros, our hearts and thoughts go out to the victims and their families. There is no way to express the sorry that we feel. Can we take a moment?” Snyder asked the stars, press and fans.
Over 30 people have been killed and more than 100 injured following the attacks at Brussels’ International Airport and Maelbeek metro station this morning (March 22).
Earlier in the day following the red carpet cancellation, Warner Bros said in a statement: “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.”
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is scheduled to open in cinemas worldwide on Friday (March 25).
A host of stars have paid their respects including Myley Cyrus, Boy George and LL Cool J following the attacks.
Cyrus wrote on Instagram: “My (heart) breaks for Brussels today. My heart breaks for the world today…. When will this end, and the love begin….. This isn’t the planet I wanna live on… NOTHING in the world matters but giving love to others! It’s what we need more than anything else! MORE LOVE LESS EVIL!!!”
The singer also vowed to take action adding: “Talking with @happyhippiefdn now about what we can do to be there for our friends in Brussels … Stay tuned on how to get involved… today we must focus on what unites us …. not divides us.”
