It just ticks me off that we have an Aussie playing Wolverine, who is required to do an accent, cause if Wolverine showed up speaking like an Aussie, people would all be like WTF??? But then for other characters its just like "eh whatever they all work better as americans." ... MEh. Disagreed.
Agreed. I'm also a fan of Harry Potter and I thank god that JK held on to creative control. I shutter to think what changes that American studios would've made to Harry AND THE REST OF THE KIDS.
I'm not gonna get to up in arms over this cause the guy can still be Irish but this is Marvel's fault for not retraining some amount of creativity when they whored the rites out to FOX. It's the main reason the Xmen are all over the place and terriable changes like Havoc being the father to Scott or Shaw's mutant power being changed.
