Tip#1091: How Superhero Movies Inspire, Part 2 - Avengers Infinity War

It was such a thrill to celebrate the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s 10-year anniversary at the opening day release of Avengers Infinity War! This ambitious cinematic series all started with the Iron Man movie in 2008 and spanned 19 fantastic films. Each film was a continuing chapter that featured exciting visuals, spectacular action and heroes that could inspire people to be the best they could be in life and at work.

Whether they were flawed people like Tony Stark/Iron Man, teenagers like Peter Parker/Spider-Man, women, Natasha Romanova/Black Widow or people of colour, T’Challa/Black Panther these Marvel heroes have become thrilling cinematic role models for young and old, individuals of all genders and colour across our world. You just need to see how the Black Panther film became an instant cultural phenomenon on social media (see tip#1081).

This 10-year anniversary of Marvel superhero movies made me reflect on my own journey and all the ups and downs during this period. These films inspired my creativity and confidence that led to successes with my motivational speaker services and my Movies that Motivate blog. They fed my positivity, resilience and indestructible optimism when faced with bankruptcy, losing my home and belongings due to undiagnosed mental illness (see tip#400). These movies gave me hope when I felt lost with nowhere to go or turn to.

These superheroes also demonstrated that, despite our human flaws, we could rise above any adversity as long as we believed in ourselves and embraced the power of teamwork and family. Marvel’s latest epic movie chapter embraces all the inspirational themes of previous films and takes them even higher!
