Avengers Facing The Masters Of Evil In AVENGERS 2?

An interesting bit of contract information has been revealed concerning Frank Grillo casting as Crossbones (via CBM). Grillo has signed on for three films which is the norm for Marvel. However, it's expected the other films will be Avengers 2 and Captain America 3. This gives me the impression that Joss Whedon's "personal" threat in Avengers 2 might be more leaning towards The Masters of Evil rather than Civil War or even Thanos.

“By not trying to [go bigger]. By being smaller. More personal, more painful. By being the next thing that should happen to these characters, and not just a rehash of what seemed to work the first time. By having a theme that is completely fresh and organic to itself.”

Masters of Evil members Radioactive Man (Iron Man 3) and Crossbones (Winter Soldier) have been already been included in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Other members such as leader Baron Zemo along with possible Thor: The Dark World baddies Amora The Enchantress and Skurge The Excutioner could be included in the films as well. I could also see The Mandarin and Abomination also added to the lineup.  Basically, seeing the Avengers fight a group of their personal villains instead of another alien invasion. Which for the most part seems a little more original than using Thanos or Skrulls.
