Id still keep them in some kind of costume.
X-3/SM3 were poorly written. Not because it had a lot of characters but they couldnt balance them. Just how many people thought more than one villain wouldnt work but Nolans Batman proved that wrong. You just have to balance it.
I dont see a reason to leave them out. They all fit a role.
Cap, Thor, and Iron MAn are getting the most screentime. Im sure if they want to put in the Hulk (which still seems like a 50/50 chance) Im sure it'll be about Banner as a non-field member with the Hulk as an ace in the whole. To early to say what they will do with Ant-Man, but with Fury, Widow, and Hawkeye, this could serve as a great introduction.
Fury could possibly have his own spinoff movie later, with Widow and Hawkeye in possible supporting role. Widow could show up in iron Man seqeul, and Hawkeye could show up in a Cap sequel. Marvel has so far implied of a shared universe where supporting characters (and sometimes lead characters) can move about freely among the films.
