My latest book, Reel Leadership, is now available on Amazon. If you love movies and leadership, you will love this book.
The critically acclaimed Black Panther movie starring Chadwick Boseman was released in 2018. Boseman was hailed as the quintessential Black Panther. Sadly, Boseman passed away on August 28th, 2020, from a battle with cancer.
His death put a kink in the planned Black Panther 2 movie, Wakanda Forever. He was set to continue holding the mantle of Black Panther. However, Marvel Studios had to change the storyline due to the passing of this great movie star.
While Boseman’s presence is missed in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, you can sense how much the producers, directors, and actors cared for their fallen star. Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is a love letter to Boseman. And a good one at that!
21 Bridges is a hot new release that faces some stiff competition. Released on the same weekend as Frozen 2, the sequel to the original Frozen movie, 21 Bridges has an uphill battle to win. However, if you’re able to leave the kids at home (or send them to see Frozen 2), you will be able to see a thrilling cop drama.
21 Bridges tells the story of NYPD detective Andre Davis (Chadwick Boseman from Black Panther). His world is turned upside down as a massive manhunt begins for two cop killers, Michael (Stephan James) and Ray (Taylor Kitsch).
The story goes even deeper as Andre realizes something isn’t right with the narrative being told about the murder of 8 cops. There is a dark web being spun. And it’s not by the cop killers. Read more...

The last ten years of movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe has been a slow build that ended this weekend. This weekend, Marvel heroes including Captain America (Chris Evans), Star-Lord (Chris Pratt), Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman), and others finally face off against the Mad Titan himself, Thanos (Josh Brolin).
Everything Marvel has done in their movie universe led viewers to this moment. A moment of complete devastation.
It also led to an Avengers movie full of leadership lessons. You can watch Avengers: Infinity War and walk away a better leader.
Let’s dig into the leadership lessons from Avengers: Infinity War and see how the movie can impact your leadership.
Black Panther is the last Marvel Cinematic Universe movie before the character packed Avengers: Infinity War releases May 8th, 2018. With the previous Marvel movies, Black Panther had a lot to live up to. Thankfully, Black Panther delivered.
Black Panther tells the story of T’Challa (Chadwick Boseman), the King of Wakanda, and his rise to the throne after his father T’Chaka (John Kani) was murdered. T’Chaka was murdered by Helmut Zemo after Ulysses Klaue (Andy Serkis) assassination attempt failed in Captain America: Civil War.
Throughout the engaging story of Black Panther, T’Challa faces internal and external threats as he navigates his newfound role as the leader of Wakanda.
Hopefully, you’ve watched Black Panther as we’re going to be discussing the leadership lessons from Black Panther in the article below.
