It's done; move on. That's the point.
Joss Whedon isn't the end all and be all of the entire Marvel universe. It's not really his right to decide what needs to happen in each and every franchise.
And I'm sure the Russos don't need to get to change Whedon's mind about it. They need to sell Kevin Feige on the idea. Maybe they can, maybe they can't, but it isn't really Whedon's call.
