1. No, I shouldn't think so, not as regular cast members. As Nuke said, they're all big-time film stars, not TV stars. S.H.I.E.L.D (God, that's a tiring word to type) would be a huge organisation, so you could probably do a show without even needing to mention the name Nick Fury. Though I'm very excited because I see lots of potential for guest appearances by Samuel L. Jackson, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner and especially Cobie Smulders!

They couldn't recast them either, because I'm thinking it'd have to try and keep some semblance of continuity with the movie franchise.

2. No, the release date for The Avengers 2 has already been set at May 1st, 2015. As Joss put it himself in this interview:

It’s not like, “You must spend this amount of time on this movie.” It’s as much as it needs to be.
