DelhiDesk The third installment of the “Guardians of the Galaxy” franchise opened this past weekend, marking a strong start to the summer movie season. While the latest movie did better in its debut than the first, it did not perform as well as the second. Marvel has been in a bit of a slump in recent years, with costly, special effects-laden films like “Eternals,” “Thor: Love and Thunder,” and “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania” failing to meet box office expectations. However, the “Guardians” franchise has been a consistently strong performer for Disney, with the latest movie marking the 32nd consecutive Marvel release to debut at number one domestically. The new “Guardians” movie may also be a last hurrah for some of Marvel’s biggest and longest-tenured stars, as the studio begins to pivot towards new casts, storylines, and villains. Despite this, optimism is high for the summer movie season, with more movies scheduled for wider release than in previous years.
