    Why is AM&tW flopping?

It's not flopping. It's looking like it'll end up with around $210 million domestic and $500 million worldwide, which is probably enough to turn a $100 million profit. It was never going to do remotely close to Black Panther or Avengers: Infinity War numbers. The numbers are close to the first Ant-Man film's, which might be a little disappointing, but not close to flop numbers.

    Marvels Toxic Liberal Agenda

This seems to be the knee-jerk go-to attack against Marvel, only how much did Avengers: Infinity War make again? Oh yeah, over $2 billion worldwide. Marvel seems to be taking that "Toxic Liberal Agenda" to the bank.

    Every MCU movie since Doctor Strange has consistently made more than the last installment. Ant Man logically should have done IW numbers. I think IW left a bad taste in everyone’s mouth.

The highest rated MCU movie on IMDB and currently #21 highest rated movie on IMDB period left a bad taste in "everyone's mouth." That's pretty nonsensical.

    In my humble opinion, it didn't feel like it had any passion behind it, even compared to the other MCU movies. I got the impression that nobody associated gave a crap about the film- Paul Rudd especially, which is unfortunate since he's almost always on screen as the title character.

Paul Rudd was one of the movie's writers so obviously he had to give a crap about it. He was acting his own material!

    What went wrong is that this is effin filler. Still fun, but nobody cares unless the current plot is resolved. Carol will get a boost for the sake of "First Marvel Heroine Movie" and because its a fresh face. Ant Man is still want of the more popular Avengers given his gimmick and likability. There's a ceiling to this cash cow

Of course there is a ceiling. There is a ceiling to every cash cow.
