At 23 films and over 30 billion dollars in revenue, the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) is the most successful and widely-recognized film franchise in cinema history. With more than 50 hours of runtime between the films and dozens of important characters to keep track of, it can be a daunting task to the uninitiated (or even a fan!) to integrate the salient themes of personal growth and overcoming adversity from the films into a therapeutic setting. In this training, we will explore an overview of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, including the main characters, villains, and overall story arc. In addition to this, we will also explore some examples of conflict for the main characters, both internal and external, that we see navigated throughout the films, and how these stories can be used to draw comparisons and offer potential solutions to individuals in a therapeutic setting.
