The Avengers are going to need some diversity. Where is that going to come from if Luke Cage isn't going to come until Phase 4 and if they choose not to make Black Panther? That's why I think we need Rhodey, Falcon and Monica Rambeau for Avengers 3 with Falcon and Rhodey more likely than Monica. They could always make Ultimate Janet or Dr. Strange as Hispanic, so we'll see if they go down that route. Also, I don't see Marvel taking a huge risk by casting a black actor (Chiwetel Ejiofor if he's not Black Panther, David Oleweyo, any Black British actor not Elba or AAA) as The Vision (although that would be interesting).
While I don't think we'll see Rhodey or Falcon in this Avengers film outside of small cameos, they ought to play a major role in Avengers 3, especially if they have no plans on making Black Panther or Luke Cage before Avengers 3.
