Yeah, clearly he's front and center in New Avengers, at least for the first arc. But just having him integrated with the rest of the MU does a world of good for his exposure, which gets him more fans, more support, more hype and more feats.

Though I don't think he needs a successful cartoon before he can get a live-action movie.
I think he does. There's got to be something to prove to the non-creative decision makers 'there's an audience for this character' and nothing proves that more than going platinum. The Black Panther cartoon we have (aside from being utterly awesome), was undermarketed and underproduced. It has a high sale ranking on Amazon compared to other D2D superhero cartoons, but that doesn't say to an executive 'the mainstream will not balk from an afro-centric superhero'
