Speaking on Xtra, Opposition leader Bernard Grech addressed the ongoing tribulations being felt by the country’s educators, saying that they are leaving their vocation due to intense pressures.

‘Teachers are leaving in dozens, if not hundreds. Remember that being a teacher – as it is for nurses, doctors and social workers – is a vocation to serve’.

‘For a teacher, it is the end of the world to leave the class room and go work in a different industry or sector’, said Grech. ‘Because they are being crushed under pressure by increasing curricula and other challenges they are facing.’

Amidst speculation surrounding the casting for Reed Richards, also known as Mr. Fantastic, in Marvel Studios’ Fantastic Four reboot, it appears that the wait may be nearing its end. 

Although not yet finalized, sources indicate that three-time Emmy nominee Pedro Pascal is in discussions to portray the leader of the iconic superhero team. Despite ongoing scheduling considerations, indications are positive for Pascal’s involvement in this project and other future endeavors.

Pascal, recognized for his roles in The Mandalorian and The Last of Us, is experiencing a career surge with upcoming commitments such as Gladiator 2 and Zach Cregger’s Weapons. 

The focus on securing the Reed Richards role first allowed Marvel to progress with casting for the remaining team members. With a potential early shoot next year, director Matt Shakman is gearing up at Pinewood Studios in England, and Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige will produce.

Pedro Pascal’s versatility, evident in his Emmy-nominated performances and franchise engagements, positions him as a leading actor in the 21st century. While other contenders were rumored, Pascal emerged as the chosen Reed Richards, a brilliant scientist with malleable abilities post-exposure to cosmic radiation. 

Pascal’s on-screen intelligence and authority make him a fitting choice for the role.

The announcement of Pascal’s involvement comes from reliable sources, and despite earlier reports of ongoing negotiations, /Film’s insider asserts that the deal is sealed. 

While fans await confirmation on the rest of the “First Family” cast, Pascal’s casting marks a significant step for the anticipated Marvel Cinematic Universe franchise. Amidst industry shifts, Pascal’s entry into the MCU reflects both the evolving landscape and the actor’s continued presence on the big screen.
