The final film in the Guardians of the Galaxy trilogy debuted to $114 million at the domestic box office over the weekend. Variety reports that this is less than the film’s projections at $120 million—and that it falls behind Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2’s debut at $146 million in 2017. Deadline writes that there is concern about “superhero fatigue” in the industry.
