Yeah, that’s pretty much the point, I think, Aslan. The guy’s not much of an actor, based on the very little we’ve seen of him, anyway.
Daniel Rand (Iron Fist) was an American, raised (for the most part) in the Orient. A fairly decent actor, working with a speech coach, could probably do a convincing accent to reflect that. It’s minor, but bad voice casting bugs me, personally, all out of proportion to the nitpicking that it really is.
I’m a Heroes For Hire geek, so I wanna see the Danny Rand from the comics in the movie version. There was a reason George Lucas overdubbed Park’s lines with someone else’s voice.
Another example of this:
Ask an X-Men fan what he thought of Logan’s accent in the very first animated X-feature Marvel put out. Canadian != Australian.
