The Tunisian theatrical premiere of Wonder Woman has been suspended while Tunisian courts review a lawsuit brought by the Tunisian Association of Young Lawyers, which aims to block the film's release in the country based on star Gal Gadot's Israeli citizenship and military service, according to Variety.

Variety reports that the Tunisian premiere was scheduled to occur in a pair of Tunisian theaters and had gathered hundreds of RSVP's for online events. However, tickets are no longer available from tiklik.tn, the country's only online movie ticket seller, who have changed the premiere's status to "suspended" pending the court's decision whether to ban the film or not.

Wonder Woman has already been banned in Lebanon due to a decades-old Lebanese law that bans the import of Isreali imports. Its premiere at a film festival in Algeria was also cancelled, though festival organizers said that was due to an issue with the distribution rights of the film.
