Leadership Lessons And Quotes From Justice League

A Reel Leadership Article

Whenever I hear about a DC Comics movie, I become nervous. They’ve not had the best track record in translating comic books into movies. Though, they have gotten better over the years.

Leadership lessons and quotes from Justice League the movie

Walking into Justice League, I was excited yet hesitant. Would the movie critics be right? Or would DC Comics pull off the impossible and have a well-done comic book movie?

Thankfully I found out for you. DC Comics did an amazing job bringing the Justice League to life.

Leadership Lessons And Quotes From Thor: Ragnarok

A Reel Leadership Article

Chris Hemsworth reprises his role as Thor for the blockbuster movie Thor: Ragnarok. This is the third time Hemsworth has been featured in a stand-alone Thor film (surprisingly, I have not done a Reel Leadership article on the other 2 Thor films).

The previous Thor films ranked on the lower end of the Marvel Cinematic Universe for me. They always felt like a letdown. Thor: Ragnarok doesn’t. Instead, Thor: Ragnarok delivers.

Not only does Thor: Ragnarok deliver in laughs, action, and adventure, Thor: Ragnarok delivers in leadership lessons as well.
