The Avengers are often referred to as Earth's Mightiest Heroes, as they transcend defending one nation and aim to protect the whole planet. As depicted in Avengers: Infinity War, some heroes hail from America, others from Wakanda, and Vision was basically born from a computer.
Admittedly, the current incarnation of Avengers in the Marvel Cinematic Universe mostly features American characters, though Scarlet Witch hails from the fictional country of Sokovia, debuting in Avengers: Age of Ultron with an Eastern European accent. In the years since her debut in the MCU, fans have noticed that a result of being away from her home country for a few years is a complete loss of accent.
While this is likely the result of American actress Elizabeth Olsen's varied inflection with her character's dialogue resulting in loss of accent, some fans are having a hard time believing a character would lose the accent so easily.

Scarlet Witch really needs to get a consistent accent. I know her country of origin isn't real but, girl, switching between almost New York, Vaguely-Russian, and lord knows what for your accent isn't a good look.— The Original Pizza Log (@dattmay) May 1, 2018
Wait one thing that I did notice in my marvel catch up is that Scarlet witch went from having an foreign accent to an American accent in civil war..how sway?— Terri-Li (@TerriLi) May 1, 2018
My one #AvengersInfinityWars question--did Scarlet Witch/Wanda's accent change at some point from Russian to American?? (I admittedly haven't seen every single Marvel movie, so maybe I missed the explanation?)— Hali Baumstein (@halibaumstein) May 1, 2018
Is it just me or did scarlet witch have a different accent in Avengers Age of Ultron? ?— Dr. Toledo Lorenzo (@drenzotoledo) May 1, 2018

I guess the one non spoiler Infinity War thing that bugged me is Scarlet Witch deadass didn’t have her random accent anymore. Like how do you lose a whole ass accent ??— Kiko??? (@slimnayeon) April 28, 2018
