I will say, "cursed" may have been too strong of a word. But I honestly doubt that if there were no plans for an Avengers movie, it's likely that these characters wouldn't have made it to the big screen. It's just an opinion, so just chill.
When watching Captain America, I personally felt that it was made only for the Avengers, and I know his end does deal with it, but I just couldn't help but feel like, "oh, we gotta tell a story so we can make an avengers movie." Once again, just an opinion.
Hopefully the Avengers lives up to what it's been building, then it'd be worth it. The teaser was def. awesome. Trust me, I'm really excited, I actually thought Thor did a fantastic job with incorporating it in the Avenger future, but it just didn't work for Cap A for me.
