Reply Subj: Avengers: Endgame pronunciation revelation

So I was watching the Avengers: Endgame extras after buying the 4K disc package. My biggest revelation was that in the Stan Lee tribute, Stan pronounces Cyttorak as sit-or-rack. I had never said the name out loud before but in my brain, I always pronounced it sigh-tor-rack as in Cy sounding like the beginning of Cyclops.

At least I always got Mag-nee-toe right, though I've heard some people call him Mag-net-o. What other Marvel names have you mispronounced or questioned its pronunciation?

For the Inhuman's city of Attilan -

I always read it as aTILLun. With the emphasis on the middle syllable. On the Inhumans TV show, they said it like Atilawn with the emphasis on the first syllable.

I assume for the TV show they would have gotten the official pronunciation from Marvel.
