Fair enough if that's what you believe. More power to you, but I personally am not about to take a cartoon show as an indicator of the casting decisions for their films.
This is part of what I'm getting at. For the run up to and post Avengers I have seen a lot of people clamouring for the characters they feel are essential to the team. I don't see many people saying Falcon should be put before them.
I didn't see a lot of people clamoring for Black Widow and Hawkeye to be put ahead of characters many consider to be more essential to the team, either; but again, Marvel Studios has a completely different idea of who's important to the Avengers and how the roster should evolve.
