    Good thing he just happen to have landed in the Greatest Country in the World.

    Well let's see.

    Hugh Jackman played Wolverine. Christian Bale played Batman. Mel Gibson played William Wallace. Elija Wood played Frodo. Sean Astin played Samwise. Andrew Lincoln plays Rick Grimes. Clearly an actor is only capable of playing a character of the same nationality. Otherwise the movie or show will be a complete failure and in no way be a suitable representation of the source material. Oh wait...

    Good luck finding someone who can act and fulfils all those without hair dye, coloured contact lenses, lifts and a dialect coach, not that they'll probably bother with most of those after all Christian Bale didn't dye his hair or wear coloured contacts to play Bruce Wayne and he is also 2" too short but he probably did get a dialect coach.
    He didn't need one. He usually plays Americans or uses a non-regional dialect. My accent until I was 18 or so was German-sh, it had been worked out of me and now I have a non-regional dialect. My girlfriend is from Russia, moved here when she was 6 and unlike me still speaks Russian but she also has no accent that indicates where is from. LEarning an American accent is easy and doesn't require a dialect coach.

    No, Metropolis was originally based off of Cleveland and Toronto. It was later modeled after New York City. Gotham is modeled off of NYC, since the name Gotham is also used in association with NYC and has been long before Bob Kane and Bill Finger came along. As Denny O'Neil said, Gotham is lower Manhattan at two thirty in the morning. Metropolis is upper Manhattan during the afternoon.
