Forget about comic-book continuity: I'm talking simple business and plot strategy. The movie we KNOW about, based on trailers and interviews and press releases, is complicated enough without trying to tack on a mind-numbingly complicated backstory to a minor character who's --- at best --- a brief cameo in this film.
Audiences will not sit still for it, period. They care about *Tony* and the people around him; they won't give a **** about vaguely peripheral characters that don't become integral to the MCU until the Ant-Man film in 2015.
