You can gradually phase some of these characters into the public consciousness and maybe eventually have them take over, but Avengers 2 will have the big 4 front and center again.
Right. It's always fun to add a couple new characters in the sequels, just not the massive team-expanding many of the fanboys crave. Now's the time to "dig deeper" into the big four as Whedon said, not the time for a passing of the torch.
With any luck (and of course some talent from the fingertips of Whedon
), SW and QS will be the Yoda/Gollum/Puss In Boots of this movie (in terms of being a breakout new character in a sequel). Except they'll obviously be, like, real people, rather than puppets/CG/cats.
