The bad politicized themes prevalent in the new Ant-Man & Wasp sequel

The Federalist reviewed Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, and to nobody's shock, there's just as much stultifying leftist propaganda in this film as several other recent Marvel-based movies:
In line with the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s (MCU) current ideological trajectory, the film reduces father figures to the status of court jesters and cuckolds while emphasizing the virtues of adultery and the political radicalization of children. Further establishing the franchise’s commitment to emasculation — hence the critical moniker “M-She-U” — Paul Rudd’s role as a father is to be the “yes man” for his teenage daughter’s Jacobin whims. Michael Douglas’ character, despite being a super genius, is depicted as a forlorn curmudgeon who accepts his wife’s adultery as merely a minor inconvenience.

But this really ought to be expected, as it has become the norm for Marvel’s parent company — Disney — to shoehorn leftist ideology into everything they produce. Disney’s obsession with inculcating its audience — which is effectively the world — with leftist ideology is why the studio’s storylines constantly revolve around political revolutions and cultural rebellions. It reinforces the priorities of the leftist managerial class that rules over us.

[...] Even without “Quantumania,” the MCU’s catalog has become filled with “burn it down” leftist apologetics. The most prominent example of this is the Disney Plus series “The Falcon and the Winter Solider,” featuring a group of anti-establishment, transnational terrorists who murder people in order to achieve social equity and free medicine. “Wandavision,” a series about an emotionally unstable witch, justifies the main character waging war against the U.S. government and holding an entire city hostage because her emotions got the best of her.
What's really offensive about WandaVision is how it draws from Brian Bendis' awful 2004 event story Avengers: Disassembled, which made Scarlet Witch out to look literally insane for the sake of reprehensible shock, and now, not only was it adapted into an overrated TV freakshow, it also saw a followup in the Doctor Strange sequel last year, yet wouldn't you know it, no leftist SJWs supposedly concerned about sexism in entertainment find it reprehensible. That just demonstrates how phony their act really is. And instead of portraying Wanda Maximoff as a woman to admire based on her abandoning her crooked father Magneto along with her twin brother Pietro, she's made out to look like a deranged creep.

Fortunately, it looks like the movie's box office prospects have sunk pretty fast, as noted by Breitbart:
More trouble on the Disney/Marvel front as Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania takes a 71 percent dive in weekend two. That’s worse than Marvel’s previous stinkers, Thor: Love and Thunder, which dropped 68 percent in weekend two, and Eternals, which collapsed by 62%.

By the end of the weekend, Ant-Man will have earned another $30 million for a running total of just $165 million.

That might sound like a lot of money, and it is, but Ant-Man 3 cost $200 million to produce and somewhere around another $100 million to promote, which puts the break-even point at around $550 million worldwide. As of right now, Ant-Man 3 has earned $265 million worldwide.
Seriously, I hope this Ant-Man movie will be the last, and same goes for the recent Thor movie sequel. What do we need these movies for anyway? They don't replace the original, far better comics, and are just as dismaying as the modern, corrupted renditions that do a terrible disfavor to Stan Lee's visions.
