With so many moving parts, creating a singular, shared universe is an incredibly difficult task. Fortunately, Marvel Studios has cracked the formula with the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), as it's all connected in a coherent and cohesive way. For the most part, Marvel movies try to stick as close to canon as possible, ensuring that comic fans are also left satisfied by the live-action adaptations.
Then, there are times when the studio has had to deviate and provide different stories. The reasons for these changes vary. In some instances, the comic book storylines may be too convoluted and large for a singular film or television series. Alternatively, there could be key characters involved that were tied up in other rights at the time. Whichever way, there are more than a handful of times when MCU films have had to pivot from the very comic book storylines that inspired them.
