3rd Guardians of the Galaxy film fares poorly compared to previous ones

The 3rd GotG movie was probably the first one I knew about in the past few years that was said to be in preparation with woke ingredients shoehorned in. Now, as John Nolte points out on Breitbart, it looks like that wokeness has indeed cost it financially upon debut:
The groomers, fetishists, and perverts now running Disney/Marvel can only be beside themselves with fear now that Guardians of the Galaxy 3 opened to a very disappointing $110 million.

That might sound like a lot of money, and it is a lot of money, but as with all things, context is necessary.

Back in 2014, before Disney began openly sexualizing little kids with transvestites, gay sex, and drag queens, the audience goodwill Marvel had earned drove the original Guardians of the Galaxy to a $94 million opening weekend. That was an astonishing success for one reason: no one knew anything about Guardians of the Galaxy. Unless you were a die-hard Marvel fan familiar with its second and third-tier characters, no one had even heard of it. Chris Pratt wasn’t anything close to a star then. He was known primarily as the chubby guy on a canceled sitcom.

But in 2014, Disney/Marvel had yet to poison its brand and Marvel series with two hairy men kissing, not to mention all the woketardery, all the left-wing rhetoric—the lecturing, preaching, hectoring, dividing, and making our eyes roll at all the heavy-handed virtue signaling. In 2014, Thor was still a competent, masculine, and heroic man instead of a clumsy, emasculated, idiotic, apron-wearing bitch.
I would just point out that recognizability of a creation that's decades old (the GotG originally debuted in 1969) isn't what should count. It's the entertainment value that does, and that's what the 1st Blade movie from 1998, which served as a lead-in to successive Marvel adaptations, was building on. This new GotG sequel, if memory serves, is one of the first where the now Disney-owned division for producing Marvel movies was said to add woke themes like gender-swapping and LGBT to the screenplay, and the comics themselves went that route a few years ago. Why, seeing James Gunn is the director of this sequel as much as the previous entries, what if it's gotten to the point where his crude conduct of the past became too much for most moviegoers to stomach?

So, any impending failure this movie sequel faces won't be a dismay. Disney/Marvel went around the bend for some time already. It's just a shame so many people still attended, and put even so much as $110 million into the filmmakers' pockets. These overrated movies don't need anybody's financing.
