I'd say Falcon is a very high probability especially with Avengers Assembled being released. I really doubt Iron Patriot will be in it. I suspect the line up will be:
That's plenty to work with already!
It still remains to be seen whether Joss will introduce the Maximoff sibs as members of the Avengers, or initially antagonists. If they're on The Other Team at the outset, then the Avenger roster for TA2 will still be small --- plenty of room for both Falcon and War Machine to join up.
And even if Wanda & Pietro are officially Avengers in TA2, adding Falcon and War Machine would bring the total up to 10....that's still entirely manageable in an ensemble film. Especially considering that you don't have to introduce Sam and Rhodey with backstories --- they're already a known quantity to audiences.
