He might be to tall, or a bit watered down to how the character is in the comics, but I think X2 showed us the potential on how great he can play Wolverine, the mansion, and also the flash backs with him screaming and blood all over his claws.
Fassbender did a great job but I don't think he out acted Mcavoy in First Class, both men have scottish accents but only one of them dropped their accent by the 2nd half of the film, you would have thought Magneto was playing Banshee with how his accent just dropped and became scottish.
Jackman never dropped his accent in the whole franchise, so I have to go with Jackman's take on Wolverine.
Imagine if Andrew Garfield, Heath Ledger, Christian Bale etc... dropped their accent?
Michael Fassbender is Irish, and so is Banshee (in the comics anyway!).
Yes, it was a bit sloppy for Fassbender's accent to come through at the end; it's probably because they were in a rush or some second-unit director filmed it and didn't get another take. It bugs me every time and it was the one major nitpick of mainstream reviewers, so let's hope he reins in his Irish roots this time!
