Over on Reddit, Marvel fans are discussing the changes from page to the screen, many of which are celebrated as a welcomed update. From making Jarvis an AI to aging up a pre-teen Bucky, here are a few changes Marvel made to storylines and characters for the MCU. Vote up the best on-screen glow-ups.
From Redditor u/EnzoMcFly_jr:
Making Jarvis an AI. Streamlining the Vision origin and making the voice of Paul Bettany a calming presence from the start was very smart.
From Redditor u/anthonyg1500:
Was looking for this. Making Jarvis an AI was a great decision. Adds to the super science aesthetic and removes the Alfred comparison...
From Redditor u/LilSenate:
But they also had the OG Jarvis is Avengers: Endgame. Which was so, so cool.

Realizing That Uncle Ben Doesn't Need To Die In EVERY Spider-Man Movie
From Redditor u/No_Permanent_Address:
I thought introducing Spidey after he was bitten and after Uncle Ben died was smart.
From Redditor u/RMWL:
Yep. Not every hero needs an intro. Especially one like Spidey, where Sony turned the [original story] into a running gag.
From Redditor u/Manolo__Manolo:
I mean if this was the first Spider-Man, then we would need an origin story. But given that we’ve already had two previous ones, we get the memo now with the Peter Parker origin.
So yeah, I agree, but I do hope we get to see more of a recognition of Uncle Ben in the MCU, just so he’s not completely ignored because he’s a big part of Peter Parker’s story and character.

A minor one, but Vulture's character. In the comics he was a one-note bad guy, occasionally out for revenge or desperately looking for ways to be young again.
The MCU changed [Vulture] to someone more nuanced, and a little detail I love: His gear is reversed-engineered from what he steals. He scavenges, like an actual Vulture...
Plus, the costume looks awesome.
