You also can't up the ante behind Thanos. If Thanos is in Avengers 2, they have nowhere to go but down for Avengers 3.
He also said "he's definitely a part of what I've got going on". Listen to the whole thing dude. He can be in Avengers 2 and still be the main threat in Avengers 3, if that's what Whedon means by the "big finale". And if you think they can't follow up on Thanos you just don't know what you're talking about. Thanos wasn't even one of the Avengers' most recognizable or best villains until he showed up in the movie last year. His finest moment is Infinity Gauntlet, which is just about on par, if that, with every other big villain the Avengers go up against. Thanos just has a bit more depth because of how devious he is.
