“Iron Man 3” is putting their London premiere plans on hold for the Iron Lady. The film was scheduled to premiere on Wednesday, but that is the same day as former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher’s funeral. Therefore, Disney has decided to push the premiere until the next day.
“London will basically be in traffic chaos and it would have been difficult logistically,” a spokesperson for Disney said.
Tatcher was the first woman to become the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, and no other woman has taken on the role since then. She passed away on Monday at the age of 87.
