Michael Fassbender... I know he's a German guy raised in Ireland, but couldn't he at least TRY to sound like Ian McKellen? I really expected more of him.
What's the point of hiring new actors and re energizing the franchise if you have new actors mimicking the previous actors?

Matthew Vaughn instructed the cast to do away with all accents in their performances. James McAvoy had planned to copy Patrick Stewart's voice (since McAvoy was going to play a younger version of Stewart's Xavier), but Vaughn quashed it; Vaughn also told Rose Byrne that Moira MacTaggart would not have her trademark Scottish accent in the film (to the Scottish McAvoy's mild disappointment).
