Ahhhhh you almost had it! You almost had it right until you said:I don't think I missed my own point, I'm not even sure logically how that's possible
People liked WW 2017 but I don't think they loved it. You cannot compare love of Wonder woman to the love of the Star Wars universe and it's occupants.
People are nit picking and beating WW up precisely because they are not blinded by any particular love of the character, whereas Mandalorian gets at least +2 because it's decent and all the loving fans are starving after the recent trainwreck films.
If a Star Wars film came out tomorrow, everyone would go and watch it. You could never say the same for WW.
And I even remember enjoying the original WW TV series when I was a child.
No they wouldn't. Star Wars films viewership has been steadily declining (or in Solo's case massively disappointing) since TLJ. Why do you think so many Transformers films were made? Because they were great? I liked them but they were certainly not great. People still wanted to see those movies.If a Star Wars film came out tomorrow, everyone would go and watch it.
Yes people would go to see it, quite a lot of people would (assuming pre-pandemic here) but nowhere near what it was pre-TLJ.
