Lucy Watson and Ianthe Rose were among hundreds of guests at the preview at Odeon Leicester Square, in London, on Wednesday night which was meant to be the night of the movie’s European premiere.
The premiere was cancelled by Warner Bros. following the Manchester Terror Attack, telling OK! Online last week, “Our thoughts are with those affected by the recent tragedy in the UK.
“In light of the current situation, we will not be proceeding with our plans for the Wonder Woman premiere and junket activities in London.”

The screening went ahead but the organisers hired GSS, Global Support Services, a security firm and “leading provider of explosive detection dog handler teams across the UK.”
GSS have worked with the Home Office, Police and private sector, and were in attendance with two highly-trained bomb dogs to check people’s bags before heading into the venue.
One guest told OK! Online that they were “happy” to see the dogs at the event: “They’re here to protect us and after what happened in Manchester it’s only a good thing to see extra security measures in place.”

Ariana Grande has reportedly beefed up her security after a suicide bomber detonated at her Manchester concert, killing 22 people.
According to Radar Online, the pop star’s “new security team consists of ex-military and is said to be the best in the business.”
Ariana cancelled the remainder of her European tour following the attack but will be performing this Sunday in aid of the victims at Emirates Old Trafford.
Miley Cyrus, Take That, Justin Bieber and Usher are among the performers at the One Love Concert.
The Wonder Woman screening went off without a hitch and people left with enthusiastic words about the film.
Wonder Woman has won rave reviews from critics as it tells the story of the Amazonian princess Diana who travels to London to end the war to end all wars.
Wonder Woman is out in cinemas now.
