So women are flocking to see this? I assume so, because if MEN are to blame for the poor box office, then women MUST be doing their part, right? Or are the evil men not only avoiding the film, but...

No idea, but I'm assuming the need for new Guardians was prompted by the absence of the present ones. (I recall the Controllers doing something to them, but I don't remember how that turned out.)
