    Uhm, why would Blonsky talk with a russian accent? He's from Yugoslavia.

    He's english? Come on, i'm sure Roth could have done a credible Russian/Eastern European accent, they are getting a bit lazy there.

    Thanks Golgo.

    Blonsky's back story was never that important (or interesting) so him being British is no big whoop.

    I think he was just joking about Blonsky not have a russian accent...

    it seems hard to believe that a production like this couldn't get a dialect coach. that part sounds like a joke to me... but he still might be serious about the british thing.

    Perhaps they will explain it like when Alan Rickman and Jermey Irons where german nazi brother with british accents in Die Hard.

    They had false identies and went undercover as brits to spy hence the accent. Its not unusal for spys to learn different languages or accents.

    I thought Emil was no spy but a Black Ops operative in the movie. Is that changed?

    Wait, that's a good question; is he a spy that's really working for someone else, but pretending to be working for Ross? Or does he work for/with Ross?

    I think he works for Ross. But if he is actually a spy like in the comic then it would be a great twist in the movie!

    You know after seeing Beowulf, i hope Abomination is as grotesque as Grendel was. it'll fuel Blonsky's rage even more.

    It still worries me as hell that part of the movie being for kids. I hope Roth's kids can dig an adult movie.

    Not a big deal to me, whatsoever. It's not even as if they're changing his ethnicity, only his accent.

    The first comic I read with Abomination in it never mentioned his real name, where he came from etc, so I never imagined his voice as having any accent at the time. With that first impression staying with me even after finding out his origins I cant say I'm too bothered he doesnt have a russian accent.

    I am curious as to why he would have a British one if he is part of an American special army force though (it's not like Roth hasn't done American accents before).
