But have any of them picked up permanent changes from the movies?
Well, given the brief timespan of these movies, "permanent" is hard to judge.

Also, the films generally don't bring a huge amount that's entirely new to the equation; Iron Man and The Dark Knight mainly just distilled various different elements that already existed in the comics. I suppose Blade would be a notable exception, since the film version was far more popular than the comics one ever has been; all the various takes on the character since 1998 have used a lot of the films (to the point that his Britishness has been heavily diluted, although now that he's joined MI: 13, they're reemphasizing that).
