Keanu Reeves would be honoured to join the Marvel Universe

Keanu Reeves would be honoured to join the Marvel Universe

Hollywood good guy extraordinaire Keanu Reeves said that he would be honoured to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Despite having never been included in the universe so far, he’s exclaimed massive interest in entering the super-hero scene. 

‘Isn’t [the MCU] bigger than a universe?’ Reeves rhetorically asked Esquire, suggesting he’s up to date on all the multiverse shenanigans. It would be a massive treat to watch Reeves enter the MCU, considering he’s played roles which are very close to the characters in the franchise. 

The titular character in John Wick and the Matrix, Keanu has established himself as being able to pull off the part without having been in any Marvel film so far. And given how the MCU itself is always including the latest and hottest actors in their roster, with Harry Styles having just been incorporated, Keanu would be a natural fit. 

‘There’s some really amazing directors and visionaries, and they’re doing something no one’s ever really done. It’s special in that sense in terms of scale, the ambition, the production. So it’d be cool to be part of that’ he said.

Doctor refuses to pay clamping fee due to lack of parking at hospital

Doctor refuses to pay clamping fee due to lack of parking at hospital
Nov 24 2021 Share

After a Mater Dei Hospital specialist had his car clamped a month ago, he refused to pay the fee to release his vehicle in protest due to lack of parking available for doctors at the state hospital. 

The identity of the specialist anaesthetist remains anonymous, but he revealed to Times of Malta that, upon going to work around a month ago, he could not find any parking. 

This is allegedly a recurring problem at the hospital. He decided to park his car along a pavement near a zebra crossing to get to work on time. This despite his car having a permit to park in the hospital’s reserved areas and a separate permit to park in restricted areas. Both parkings are always full, exclaimed the doctor. 

He revealed to the newsroom that, for the past month, he was using his wife’s car to get to work on time. He refused to pay the fine because he believes that authorities don’t have the right to clamp their cars given the context.

He is currently seeking legal advice and is questioning whether a private company contracted by the hospital has the legal right to clamp doctor’s cars on the private property once they have permits.

A man who was ran away after being approached with an arrest warrant by police after missing a court sitting insisted he was chasing his dog. 

The 31-year-old man was eventually arrested by police and appeared before magistrate Monica Vella today. His lawyer told the court that police approached the accused whilst he was walking his dog. 

The pet ran away at that very moment, forcing him to chase after it. Police promptly gave chase, but one suffered slight injuries after running into scaffolding in the area. 

Police body cam footage was shown in court, resulting in the decision that it was clear that the accused was attempting to run away from police and that he needed to be caught. 

He was accused of causing injuries to police, disobeying orders and even letting his dog roam around without a leash. Bail was granted against a personal guarantee of €3,000. He was ordered not to leave the house at night.

Malta has repatriated 361 irregular migrants since the start of this year, Home Affairs Minister Byron Camilleri revealed. 

The Minister was responding to a parliamentary question by MP Joseph Ellis, with Camilleri saying that 36 of the 361 returned home voluntarily. 234 migrants were relocated but no details were given on the nationality of the migrants. 

The entire repatriation operation cost the government €359,899.49, with 75% of this amount being co-financed by the European Union. Camilleri revealed that there were instances in which the EU provided assistance to Maltese authorities through its liaison officers present in the country of origin, particularly in those countries where Malta had no diplomatic representation.
