The longer the Marvel Cinematic Universe continues, the more it strays from its comic book origins. Changes in character arcs for the films are often due to contracts, how long a certain actor wants to play a certain character, and other real life intrusions that don't get in the way when your characters are drawn by artists as opposed to played by people.
As a result, Marvel comics and the MCU have a different landscape of who's alive and who's dead. In the comics, some of the biggest MCU characters have actually been dead for a while. On the flip side, big MCU players who died in the films are alive and well in the comics.
One interesting difference in the comics is also the ways that characters come back to life. The MCU seems to try to stay relatively grounded, rarely straying into the strangest corners of the Marvel Universe, with the exception of the Guardians movies. The stories of many Marvel comics characters' resurrections are far weirder than one might expect to see on the big screen.
