In my humble opinion they haven't seemed to be shure about what to do until now, but that's just my opinion.
That happens on pretty much every adaptation, Marvel was just more vocal about it. The Mandarin was supposed to be the main villain in the first Iron Man, until pretty much the last second when he was swapped out for Obadiah Stane. The Avengers was supposed to be focused around Steve to use him as kinda the viewpoint of the audience, when in fact Iron Man seemed to have the majority of the attention. There are a million options to go with, and those are all points that members of the production would like
to touch upon. Does that mean it will all end up on the screen? No. It just means they are aware of what they'd LIKE
