I think the vast majority of "Star Wars Fans" are very casual about the franchise, especially when it doesn't have things from the OT or different actors playing iconic roles."Star Wars fans" aren't as large of a fanbase as they think they are, they've overestimated their sway/size for decades now, starting with claiming Episode I would easily destroy Titanic's box office take.
There's no "rule" that said Marvel couldn't become more popular. There's nothing that special about overtaking Star Wars post 1977, many movie IPs have done it.
