1) Introduce the Masters of Evil throughout the next set of Marvel movies
2) Avengers 2 is some variation on Avengers: Under Siege
3) Next set of Marvel movies takes all of the Avengers off the board somehow by the end of the cycle
4) Avengers 3 involves the Thunderbolts attempting to replace the Avengers. The Avengers then get wise to their bullshit, gather back together, expose them, and defeat them.
With the Thunderbolts, you could do the Hawkeye in prison story, like I mentioned.
He puts together a bunch of villains for an escape and a mission. Some of the villains would be unrepentant, but maybe one or two would form the core of your Thunderbolts. I think it could work, but it would be a heavily modified version of the concept.
