It's beyond silly to argue that they shouldn't add characters who "aren't well known". They have no more well known characters in their stable. More characters will become well known by virtue of being used in the movies.
And Spider-Man won't be in the Avengers sequel, no matter how many times you come into this thread and post about it.
I bet we at least get a cameo of Spider-Man in costume as part of an effort to help tie Spider-Man into the Avengers.
