The U.K. premiere of “Iron Man 3,” originally scheduled for Wednesday, the same day as former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher’s funeral, has been postponed because of safety concerns.

Disney has moved the much-anticipated premiere to Thursday, a day after services for “the Iron Lady,” but still eight days before the film opens at the box office, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Some media outlets in the United Kingdom report the funeral may to lead to civil unrest, with anarchists using the Internet to call for protests in Trafalgar Square, Zap2It reports.

Stars Robert Downey Jr.and Gwyneth Paltrow are scheduled to attend the U.K. premiere.

“Iron Man 3” is scheduled for a May 3 release in the United States.
