As popular as superhero movies are these days, it's definitely fair to say that the characters in them are very rarely completely faithful depictions of the versions presented in comic books. They often look completely different, have different origins, possess different powers, or have different personalities - in some cases, all four of those differences apply.
Believe it or not, this notion even applies in the incredibly popular Marvel Cinematic Universe - including in the case of the franchise's heroic characters.
In this video, we'll be taking a closer look at that particular idea. The following MCU heroes were completely changed for their respective movies; The franchise's flagship character Tony Stark AKA Iron Man who's played by Robert Downey Jr., the Guardians of the Galaxy's leader Peter Quill AKA Star-Lord who's played by Chris Pratt, the powerful android Vision who's played by Paul Bettany, the Guardians of the Galaxy's muscle Drax the Destroyer who's played by Dave Bautista, former S.H.I.E.L.D. agent and scientist Hank Pym AKA the first Ant-Man who's played by Michael Douglas, the twins Wanda and Pietro Maximoff AKA Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver who are played by Elizabeth Olsen and Aaron Taylor-Johnson respectively, the incredibly skilled archer Clint Barton AKA Hawkeye who's played by Jeremy Renner, the perfectly designed being Adam Warlock who hasn't yet been cast, the Asgardian warrior Valkyrie who's played by Tessa Thompson, and the hilarious rock-like warrior Korg who's played by Taika Waititi.
