Assuming they had a detailed conversation - even thought we've shown it was completely unnecessary - why wouldn't they tell him not to keep quiet like they've told everyone else.

It's incredible how many baseless assumptions you're pretty sure about.

Or, it would be a fair guess that he was saying that Phase II movies would hint at the next threat the Avengers face in Phase III. Since, you know, that's exactly what he said.
Hmmm... you're not really hung up on 'context' are you? Or accurate quoting? He said elements folded into phase II would pay off in the culmination of phase II and III. He didn't say hint, he said build, as in the subplots of Phase II would be relevant to Avengers 2 as they are Avengers 3.

Your entire point hinges on the idea that when he said 'elements' he was talking about two sets of elements, one to build to Phase II's culmination and another set to build to Phase III's culmination. That's a bit of a leap, but not one that explicitly excluded by the language like they idea they'll just hint at Phase III villains instead of starting to build them up. Oh, and it also requires that he had stopped answering the question he was asked mid-paragraph, something that he doesn't usually (ever?) do.
