I'm not familiar with the comics though, so I don't know if that would be blasphemy or not.
No it wouldn't be blasphemy, they just happen to come along a lot later

There are other interesting Avengers that came before them: The Vision, Wonder-Man, Ant-man (which would open a potential huge story with Ultron), War Machine, She Hulk, Namor (Sub-Mariner), and Black Panther

I think with a better story, some more interesting characters, and a more menacing villain, the sequel could make it over the fence.
I think your two issues can possibly be solved in the sequel.

If they happen to follow through with Thanos, he is one of the ultimate Marvel Villains

and he is tied to the Cosmic Cube also
