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.

With recent movies like Suicide Squad, Batman Vs. Superman, and Wonder Woman DC Comics is making a name for itself in the comic book to movie world.

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. Seeing Batman (Ben Affleck), Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), Aquaman (Jason Momoa of Baywatch), Flash (Ezra Miller), Cyborg (Ray Fisher), and Superman (Henry Cavill) join forces to defeat the coming threat of Steppenwolf (Ciarán Hinds) was amazing.

We’ve seen Marvel Studios succeed with comic book based movies. Captain America, Thor, The Avengers, Ant-Man… They’ve all been blockbuster movies.

Meanwhile, DC Comics has floundered in creating a cinematic universe that movie-goers will fall in love with. Movie flops such as Superman Returns and the recent Batman Versus Superman left fans wondering if DC could deliver a worthwhile movie experience.

15 Quotes And Leadership Lessons From Batman Versus Superman: Dawn Of Justice

A Reel Leadership Article

When we last saw Superman on the big screen, he was learning the ropes of the superhero thing. In Man of Steel, we see Henry Cavill play the caped hero. Only he’s not yet a hero.

He’s hunted by the US military. People are scared of him. And he creates a lot of chaos and damage.

And that’s where Batman Versus Superman comes in.

Bruce Wayne, better known as Batman, saw the mayhem poured out on the citizens of Metropolis. He saw this chaos and knew something had to be done.

Not only does Superman have Batman coming after him, the whole world is questioning him and his motives. Can he be trusted? Will he turn? Who is he really?

These questions and concerns led Batman, Superman, and other DC heroes into a battle that I believe is worth watching.

Batman And The Power Of Fear

By now you’ve probably heard of the tragic shooting which happened during opening night of Batman: The Dark Knight Rises. It was a horrific event.

12 people are dead. 58 are left injured. An untold number left fearful.

After the shooting, there were reports of movie goers who were scared to go to the movie and mayors who were going to step up theater security.

People were scared.

A similar event was the Columbine shootings in 1999. It left many people uneasy about school and their children.

The shooting left me scared as well.

Were other students going to come and shoot up a school? Were students safe? When will it happen again?

We were left fearful.

And for what? There were no further shootings. Not with the Batman shooting or with the Columbine shooting.
