    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.

I kinda accidentally pronounced it correctly, again due to not being a native speaker, in this case because Attila (the Hun) is stressed on the first syllable in German. One case where I was misled by the German pronounciation was Titanium man, where I sometimes pronounced the first syllable as "tee" (many Germans for instance also have a tendency to pronounce the name of the ship as "tee-TAH-nick").
