What are the obvious reasons? If you think some one can fake an accent good enough for one part then why can't they fake it good enough for another?
I dont understand this facination with casting British/non-americans actors to play american roles either. Im not saying I dont get it but I find it weird that of all the actors they could've picked to play Spider-man, Batman, and Superman they chose three people who arent american. It all worked out for the best I guess.
