The Wild Card game between the Rams and Cardinals was so uneventful that the attention unfortunately turned to ESPN commentator, Steve Levy.
And during the broadcast, Levy riled up the people on social media after he hilariously mis-pronounced the movie company, Marvel, when making small talk with his fellow announcers.
It sounded like Steve Levy somehow made the mistake of calling the company “Mar-vell”
Dear Steve Levy: it’s Marvel, not Marvelle.

The supply chain of intellectual property marketing is absolutely hilarious. Suzy Kolber rolling out talking points for a superhero TV show. Steve Levy not even knowing how to pronounce Marvel. Just amazing.

Did Steve Levy really just mispronounce Marvel Studios? While working for Disney owned ESPN? How does that happen?

Oh hell no I know Steve Levy didn’t just say “Mar-veil” studios. It’s “Marvel Studios!!!” pic.twitter.com/7DagJdS1ry

The most interesting part of tonight’s game is Steve Levy pronouncing Marvel like the ice cream place Carvel. (Mar-vell) 😂

Only good thing about this Rams v. Cardinals game is Steve Levy's pronunciation of "Marvel Studios" in these promos for…their new line of ice cream cakes, I think?

I love how Steve Levy doubled down on that mispronunciation of Marvel

You know it’s a rather boring game when Steve Levy is trending for how he pronounced “Marvel” instead of the game itself. And unfortunately, a lot of the games during Super Wild Card Weekend ended in blowout fashion.
But luckily, we’ll have many more great NFL Playoff games coming in the future. And hopefully they will take the attention away from how strange Steve Levy’s pronunciations are.
