If the twins are in it it's because it makes sense and works for the story, it's not smart to shoehorn Avengers in just to have them on screen.
To be fair, the Maximoffs were X-Men characters before they were Avengers in the comics, even though they were Avengers for longer. But I understand where you're coming from.
And the characters like Wasp, Ant-Man, Panther, and Ms. Marvel can be worked into the script with rewrites. It's only shoehorning if they aren't relevant to the story, and they can be made to be relevant if they aren't already.
