Are you saying that you don't want any of those films? Are those characters unworthy of cinema? Are you a long-time super Avengers nerd and just don't like how Disney/Marvel is treating your favorite team? I can understand if that's the case - I HATED the newest X-Men film despite being an X-Men nerd for the past 30 years.
You must have been looking for something that wasn't there. I've seen the movie three times in the theater so far (and I'm going a fourth time this weekend) and each time the film has been only about the threat at hand and the team coming together to defeat it. I'll look for those ads this time.
If Black Widow gets her own film, it would probably be pretty good. I thought she was a completely bland character in Iron Man 2, but her role in Avengers has me wanting more. As for Hulk... I would gladly accept a third film as long as they don't use a 4th actor to portray him - Ruffalo makes a great Banner. I'm not sure where you're getting the vibe that Fury will get his own film, though. If anything, he'll continue to have cameos in other films and probably a strong supporting role in a Black Widow film (if they make one).
