Maybe we will need a Red Skull "Mwwwwhahahaha" after credit scene or something. Avengers shouldn't be a climax by any stretch. Whatever the main threat is in the movie needs to be neutralized, but I feel we also need some setups for future Cap villains if they intend to make sequels. I actually have a feeling the SHIELD movie SLJ was talking about may end up featuring Cap regardless just to give the movie a true presence.
Marvel is in a weird place after avengers; they don't really have any A-list properties left to unveil...which leaves me with a feeling that they're hoping to make Thor, Cap, and Avengers trilogies...they at least need to plan 1 big tentpole for the next 10 years...and to be honest, none of the other movies have that 400-500 million dollar potential.
