I don't see why it'd take a long time, anyway. At the end of the last movie, they all parted on good terms, and pairs of them have even kept in touch. You can start the movie simply with the Avengers already being back with the explanation that Stark called them all over.
I agree that there's no need to wade through as much exposition as the first movie to assemble the Avengers this time, but it's going to require a little bit more than just "Stark called them all over." Thor, in particular, is going to require a good bit of explanation, since Tony will assume he's still on Asgard --- as will the rest of the general movie audience. The only people who even know Thor returned to Earth at the *very* end of TDW are Jane Foster and the handful of yucks like us who stick around for the post-post credits.
