The Steve Rogers/Captain America scene would have added a richness and depth to the character, yes. But the alternate opening was unnecessary, deceptive and badly acted on Smulders' part. It was too stilted and would have hobbled the film right out of the gate by slowing the pace down to a crawl. The framing device was unneeded anyway. It's best to start off in the midst of the action and hit the ground running instead of watching third-raters blather on about things that would be revealed later in the film.
