Stark is an expert in electronics, robotics, and weapons tech; Banner is an expert in physics; Pym is an expert in biochemistry. That gives each a very different specialty, and makes each one unique.
I can't see the vast majority of people caring about that. Stark and Banner work in two separate areas sure, yet in the film they were both discussing about the same thing, the Tessearct. Let's say a similar situation arises in the sequel, wouldn't the same just happen again in order to show links between them? It's not necessarily bad, but could be overkill when half the superhero team is made up of scientists. It should be more diverse, in and out of action.
