Long before Marvel's next superhero flick Doctor Strange even went into production, the studio was receiving some flack for casting Tilda Swinton in the role of the Ancient One.

The problem several people had with the actress was that the role was not only traditionally a male character, but Asian as well!

While we LOVED the trailer for Strange that gave us our first glimpse of Swinton's character, as well as Benedict Cumberbatch as the Sorcerer Supreme, there still fans who are a bit upset and claimed Tilda's casting was another example of cultural appropriation of Asian characters.

That's why the Chronicles of Narnia actress decided to address the controversy at a screening of A Bigger Splash, as she told The Hollywood Reporter:

HIGHlarious New Hail, Caesar! Trailer Is All About BAD Movie Accents — But Is It Worse Than These Real Movies?

Joel and Ethan Cohen's latest ensemble comedy Hail, Caesar! takes us behind-the-scenes in the Golden Age of Hollywood.

Boasting an all-star cast of Josh Brolin, George Clooney, Channing Tatum, Scarlett Johansson, Jonah Hill, Tilda Swinton, and Frances McDormand, the film follows a studio fixer who tries to track down a kidnapped movie star!

But this trailer is all about a director (Ralph Fiennes) desperately trying to get his country-dwelling star (Alden Ehrenreich) to speak with a fake British accent!

The hilarious My Fair Lady-esque clip in the new trailer details the struggle of trying to film with an actor whose articulation doesn't quite fit the scene — which happens all the time IRL!

Whether it's due to a poor vocal coach or just not enough rehearsing, talented stars like Cameron Diaz, Tom Cruise, and Anne Hathaway have all fallen victim of the bad movie accent!

Check out the trailer (above) and compare with our list (below) — and go see Hail, Caesar! in theaters February 4!

Marvel is taking another step towards diversity - though they're clearly sticking with that longterm plan of only employing fabulously talented people!

They're doing both those things by hiring the amazing Tilda Swinton!

The We Need To Talk About Kevin star is reportedly joining Benedict Cumberbatch in the magical Doctor Strange!

Tilda is apparently set to play Strange's immortal mentor The Ancient One.

The character is traditionally depicted as an old bearded man, but after they couldn't find the right fit, Marvel decided to cast a wider net and go with a bolder choice!

Innerestingly, this will be the SECOND time Tilda has taken on the role of a previously male character in a comic book movie; in 2005 she played the archangel Gabriel in the Keanu Reeves version of Constantine.

Doctor Strange is directed by Scott Derrickson and is set to hit theaters November 4, 2016.
