The MCU is its own beast, as it should be. And they can do plots for themselves. Of course, a little acknowledgement of comic book storylines here and there is fine, like they did with the demon in a bottle or armor wars elements in IM2 or JMS' Thor run in Thor. Still the movies managed to be very original stories that told their own stuff.
And that's what I expect MS to do in the future too.
So, no to a Planet Hulk or a Civil War or a Infitiy Gauntlet movie. Do your own thing, twist elements from those storylines to fit the metaplot of the MCU if you have to, but no direct (or near direct) adaptations please.
Too late, Iron Men 3 is taking a lot from Extremis and vol.4 of Iron Man comics, while Captain America: Winter Soldier will possibly take a lot from the winter soldier storyline
