‘Allo ‘allo ‘allo Loonies!

Wha’ ‘ave we ‘ere???

Hehehe…that is just me trying to put on an English accent using the power of words! 

Now, I may not have been all that successful at it, but I know someone who has a FAR more accomplished mastery over the written word…that someone being the young chap you see pictured above. However, before we get into introductions – 

As usual, if you’ve been looking at your telescope up into the night sky (and not at the neighbours, you peeping tom!) – or if you’ve obtained a Moon app much like myself – you’ll note that this coming weekend we will be gifted with a Full Moon!

PHASE OF THE MOON: FULL MOON (FRIDAY, 19TH APRIL)

MOON & STARS – MOON KNIGHT FOR FILM!

Khonshu’s big, fat orb of an eye will be beaming down on us and when this happens, we at ITK are summoned to pay homage to Moon Knight as featured on the small or big screen.

Which brings me back to the picture of the gentleman above. The High Priests are VERY honoured to have with us on the upcoming show, a man who alongside one of his oldest friends (Doctor Issues), venture to break down the mind set of comic book characters in their very awesome podcast,

‘Capes on the Couch – Where Comics Get Counselling’

Capes on the Couch also have a great episode dedicated to Moon Knight too!

Issue 4 – Moon Knight

Anthony Sytko joins High Priest Rey to discuss a pet project Anthony has been working on for years – it is in fact, a movie script for Moon Knight which was written with the intent on pitching to the big movie studios!

Anthony has spent alot of creative effort and hard work honing a film script which features the Fist of Khonshu, so we go through not only the film script itself, but the synopsis as well as the cast of characters included in the treatment. There are a few surprise guests in it and the premise is an absolute cracker!

Apart from discussing the Moon Knight film script, Anthony chats about his love for the character, his podcast and comics in general.

As we’ve already pre-recorded this episode (almost 2 months ago….of which things certainly have progressed…Anthony and his wonderful wife have a new addition to their family, a beautiful baby boy, Theo. When we recorded this episode, Anthony was not yet a Dad!), there won’t be any questions per se for Loony Listeners to weigh in on, however that is not to say we don’t want to hear from you!

I’ll post a discussion thread on our social media platforms to get the mental juices flowing, but what we’d like to know from you, the faithful Loony Listeners are:

  • If you made a TV show or film on Moon Knight, what arc would you base it on?
  • What story would you like to tell?
  • Who would you like to see portray Moon Knight or his supporting cast (….and don’t say Jake Gyllenhaal!)
  • Which other characters would guest star in your Moon Knight TV show/film?

As always, you can reach us on ANY of the below social media platforms – please do drop us a line – we always love to hear from fellow Loonies…and we’ll definitely give you a shout out on the show!!

If you DON’T want your comments broadcast, please just add, “(DNB)” at the end of your comment, and we’ll be sure not to broadcast it. We’ll pick a few comments from here and discuss on the show!

It certainly was a blast having Anthony on the show and is testament to the passion we Moon Knight fans have! It constantly amazes me how cool Moon Knight Fans (Loonies) can be, and it’s an amazing time to be a Moon Knight fan….

The only thing that would make it even more amazing would be a new comic book series and a TV show or Film announced!

With Disney+ being announced to go live at the end of the year, there’s plenty of scope to have Moon Knight fit in there somewhere. I only hope that he isn’t used  wastefully and becomes an incidental character in someone else’s show/film. What Anthony shows is that there is enough there for Moon Knight to sustain a film by himself, and alongside his supporting cast and rogue’s gallery, there is enough there to provide the drama, action, horror and wit that makes up many an MCU or DCEU film.

I do hope you enjoy this upcoming episode and that it motivates you too, to if not create, write or draw…then to merely continue to stay buoyed at the enjoyment that’s one gets from following the adventures of Moon Knight and being a fan.

May Khonshu Watch Over the Denizens of the (K)Night,
