What sort of stuff? There's nothing to indicate that any of these existing MCU villains would ever want to team up just to get some payback for getting their asses kicked, and there's *certainly* nothing to indicate that audiences want to see that.

Let's be honest here: so far, Marvel Studios has produced exactly one great supervillain. Outside of Loki, none of the MCU villains have generated a noticeable fanbase, and the jury is still out on all the Phase II villains --- up to and including my main Mad Titan, Thanos. So, if audiences both general and fanboy haven't started any "bring back Whiplash! Abomination! Red Skull! etc" campaigns, what makes you think they're going to be at all excited about seeing those lame villains fight the heroes again....?

The MoE is a concept that works great in comics --- a bunch of "name" supervillains team up to get revenge against the almighty Avengers. In the MCU, so far, there haven't been enough noteworthy villains for audiences to give a damn about seeing again.
