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.
Five years after the original Pacific Rim released, the world is treated to the second Pacific Rim film, Pacific Rim: Uprising. Starring John Boyega (Finn in the new Star Wars films) as Jake Pentecost, son of Stacker Pentecost (Idris Elba), the hero of the first Pacific Rim. Jake is a troubled young adult.
He’s been in trouble with the law. He’s tried to go his own way. Only to be arrested by the police and forced to train and lead a new generation of Jaeger pilots.
When all hell breaks loose because of a new threat, Jake has to truly step up and lead the way. Much like his father did.
Hang onto your hats kids, Pacific Rim: Uprising brings you action, adventure, and a lot of fun. You’ll also find plenty of leadership lessons in Pacific Rim: Uprising.
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).
Thor: Ragnarok changes tones for the third film. Ragnarok feels more like a buddy comedy than full-on action/superhero. And that’s not a bad thing.
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.
