Projections for a $130 million opening for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.3 – MSN Deadline
These numbers are lower than the numbers put out for GOTU Vol.2 which came out in 2017 when tickets cost less (Average $8.97 in 2017, versus approx. $11 for 2023) so this lowered projection may be factoring a number of things:
- Marvel and DC superhero films have been fairing badly with recent releases
- A lowered projection helps ease the smell of egg on the face if the new title stumbles
- Maybe the test audience reviews aren't too good

The multiverse stuff... it's fun to watch the trailer with all the ... Spider-Horse, and all these other spider-characters. But I would happily trade all this to never deal with any of this again to have a real comic-universe with some real stakes and good, solid adventures where there wasn't a reset version of an alternative version of the the character. It's not that its been run into the ground, it's that they've got a giant cavern at this point and they're going deeper."

Annual analysis of Graphic Novel sales (for 2022) – Comics Beat
DC Comics is down, Image is down, IDW had a strong year, HarperCollins is strong... many other publishers are briefly examined, plus:
Marvel Comics has by far the most baffling performance of any publisher, with a paltry 16,000 copies of a single book sold in the top 750. Looking at the total list, they had a shade over 5000 different titles on the list, but only 932k copies sold – an average of 186 per title. Meanwhile Scholastic was able to move 42k copies of Miles Morales: Shockwaves. In fact every Marvel licensee – Viz, Scholastic, PRH, Abrams – was able to sell more books than Marvel itself.
