It's a much better fit for the web-slinger, and the Avengers has had so many great members throughout the years that there are plenty of other cool ones to utilize.
As a 46-year old longtime comic aficionado, I feel where you're coming from; but you've got to understand that Marvel Studios is trying to appeal to a much younger crowd than us, and that includes kids as a prime target (they're the ones who buy/pester Mommy for all the merch).
