Speaking of accents, maybe it was just me, but did it seem that Fassbender's accent changed towards the end of the movie? For the most part he had a English accent more or less. But it just seemed when he was talking near the end (ie. the beach scenes) it sounded more like he had an American twang.
American, Northern Irish and more than a hint of English imo. Perhaps Erik's been quite the globetrotter. (Fassbender is Geman-N.Irish, btw.)

No, German parentage but brought up in Kerry. He did a very convincing NI accent in Hunger (I'm sure you know that you know that the NI and Kerry accents are miles apart) and a strong English one in Inglorious Basterds. Which made it all the odder that he had such a totally southern Irish (to my ears) accent throughout much of X-Men!
