There are plenty of reasons that Marvel Studios only loosely adapts its comics source material for films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Changes to plots, characters and problematic histories sometimes require that scenes be adapted or changed entirely. However, that doesn't mean that Marvel Studios never borrows from the comics. In fact, there are fifteen absolutely fantastic moments in the films that are taken directly from the comics.
One of the most incredible scenes adapted from the comics came in Avengers. Bruce Banner transforms into Hulk aboard the Helicarrier, which leads to a fight with his fellow Avengers. Among those Avengers is Thor. This battle closely resembles a scene from the comics in which Loki manipulates the two heroes into fighting each other.
There's also Captain America: Civil War, which does differ a lot from its source material. However there's a major fight between Tony Stark and Captain America that takes a scene directly from the comics. As Iron Man blasts Captain America, the latter holds up his Vibranium shield, resulting in a visually stunning moment just as the rift between the two heroes gets solidified.

Although it's not clear exactly how the MCU will look following the events of Avengers: Endgame, there are a number of movies in production, including Spider-Man: Far From Home, Doctor Strange 2, Black Panther 2, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, Black Widow and The Eternals. Each of these movies has a definite chance of containing its own homages to the source material, especially as Marvel Studios looks to the comics for inspiration.
