A Hawkeye Streaming TV Show Can Introduce The MCU's Best Legacy Hero

Marvel Studios is working on a range of eight-to-ten-episode big-budget TV shows for the Disney streaming service, and a prime contender should be a <strong><em><a href="https://screenrant.com/tag/hawkeye/">Hawkeye</a&gt; </em></strong>show, focusing on the relationship between Clint Barton and his protege/partner, Kate Bishop.

[SPOILER] Definitely Isn't The New Green Arrow

The latest episode of <a href="https://screenrant.com/tag/arrow/"><em><strong>Arrow</strong></em></a&gt; seems to have established that John "Digg" Diggle has not taken up the mantle of the Green Arrow. While earlier episodes had Digg denying that he had once again put on Oliver Queen's hood in a bid to protect Star City, there was still a chance that he was lying in order to conceal his vigilante activities; however, it now seems clear that Digg is not the new Green Arrow, following the events of "Crossing Lines."

George R.R. Martin Confirms Game of Thrones Prequel Is Called The Long Night

<a href="https://screenrant.com/tag/game-of-thrones/"><strong><em>Game of Thrones</em></strong></a> author George R.R. Martin has confirmed that the first of up to five potential prequel shows will be called <strong><em>The Long Night</em></strong>. The HBO show is expected to <a href="https://screenrant.com/game-thrones-tv-prequel-filming-start-date/">begin filming in early 2019</a>, ready to take up the mantle after <em>Game of Thrones</em>' final season, and just <a href="https://screenrant.com/game-thrones-prequel-naomi-watts-cast/">cast Naomi Watts</a> in a mystery role as a "<em>charismatic socialite hiding a dark secret</em>."

Disney's Star Wars Already Turns A Profit On Lucasfilm Purchase

Six years after Disney purchased Lucasfilm to bring back the <a href="https://screenrant.com/tag/star-wars/"><strong><em>Star Wars</em></strong></a> franchise, the Mouse House has already turned a profit on their $4 billion investment. When George Lucas concluded his prequel trilogy with <em>Revenge of the Sith</em> in 2005, many believed the Skywalker saga was over and there would be no more films set in the galaxy far, far away. Of course, that couldn't have been further from the truth as <em>Star Wars</em> now stands alongside Marvel and Pixar as key cogs in Disney's ever-expanding media empire. Four films have been released in this era, with plenty more still to come.

EXCLUSIVE: Iron Fist & Luke Cage Cancellation Reason Revealed By Netflix Viewer Data

<strong><a href="https://screenrant.com/tag/netflix/">Netflix</a&gt; </strong>viewing figures provided exclusively to <em>Screen Rant</em> have explained just why the streaming service canceled <em><a href="https://screenrant.com/tag/iron-fist/">Iron Fist</a> </em>and <a href="https://screenrant.com/tag/luke-cage/"><em>Luke Cage</em></a>. The recent high-profile cancellations left Marvel fans shocked, not least because Netflix <a href="https://screenrant.com/marvel-iron-fist-netflix-canceled/">pulled the plug on </a><em><a href="https://screenrant.com/marvel-iron-fist-netflix-canceled/">Iron Fist</a> </em>just a month after the release of a much-improved season 2. No reason for the cancellations has ever been officially presented; it's generally believed <em>Iron Fist </em>was canceled because of poor viewing figures, while there are reports of behind-the-scenes conflict between Marvel and Netflix over <em>Luke Cage</em>.

The works of the late author Sir Terry Pratchett are set to begin flooding the small screen, as BBC America announces it has greenlit <b><i>The Watch</i></b>, a new scripted drama inspired by the <a href="https://screenrant.com/tag/discworld/"><i>Discworld</i></a&gt; series of books.

The Last Jedi's Trailers Created The Star Wars Backlash

Did <a href="http://screenrant.com/tag/star-wars-8/"><strong><em>Star Wars: The Last Jedi</em></strong></a>'s trailers and marketing help create the movie's backlash? The <a href="https://screenrant.com/star-wars-last-jedi-critics-audience-divide/"><em>Star Wars</em> fan divide</a> has never been bigger, and it's mostly blamed on the release and surrounding decisions Lucasfilm made with <em>Episode VIII</em>. But could Disney have released the exact same movie to a much more accepting audience if they'd only marketed it better?
