The Avengers exist in the MCU. Ant-Man is not in them. They are currently disassociated in the MCU, and in the minds of the public. Also, the reports on Ant-Man have kept rolling in, the most recent is from december, and they all tell the same story: standalone script. It's really not dependent on whether or not you can see it, or how we identify Ant-Man as an Avenger.

Ouch. I wouldn't go that far. He's a good character, with a lot of potential as a thinking man's superhero.
