Sometimes movies based on books follow the same plot or is close to it. However, it sounds like Avengers: Infinity War the movie will be different to what the old comic book presented to us several decades ago. 

During an interview with Cinema Blend, Mark Ruffalo describes that Avengers: Infinity War is much different to the Infinity Gauntlet comic book. You can read some of his comments on the matter posted down below. 

"And it's so different from the comic books. There's elements that are clearly the same, but when you really start to get into the story, everything changes. I did... Planet Hulk was a big influence for Thor 3, and the idea, the inkling of World War Hulk starts to... I read (that) way before doing this, and there's some interesting stuff in there, but honestly nothing so far directly related to this. ... [Infinity Gauntlet] is informative as well, but then again, it just gets so off of that topic that it starts to become a little confusing, where you're like 'Why isn't this in there? Why are we doing this?"

I read the Infinity Gauntlet comic book back in 2014 and would have to agree the film is different.

Although I have yet to see the film itself, I certainly know the movie won't have characters like Adam Warlock, the X-Men and the Fantastic Four.

Adam Warlock actually plays a big part in the comic book, but he's not part of the MCU yet. He will not make his film debut until maybe the release of Guardians of the Galaxy 3 releasing sometime in the year 2020. 

I feel the film version of Infinity War replaces Adam Warlock with Doctor Strange who is super powerful and can do the multi-verse side of things.

Not to mention Marvel wanted to make the film different to avoid people spoiling the movie for others.

Avengers: Infinity War releases in North America on April 27th, 2018. The American release date was pushed up one week in order to meet the huge demand for the film.
