Its in what they published. When they show the statue of the Avengers founders in comics Cap is usually front and center. Think of Avengers 1-4 as an origin arc if you must.
Well you can make up any lame excuse you want but it states explicitly that Avengers was founded in issue #1 and Cap is not there.

I think they'll figure it out. There's a time gap between Cap's rescue of the Howlers and his being frozen. Most folks will not care that he was shown waking up in the present at the end of CA: TFA. That kind of thinking is the province of nitpickers, who are not the bulk of any movies' audience.
The problem is the next movie Cap is shown is The Avengers not Cap 2 so even if you decide to do a period piece people will still notice it. People are dumb but not that dumb.
There's no reason for the general audience to notice or care about either of these points. The movie says Cap is 'The First Avenger' that's all they'll care about- Cap, Ironman and Thor and whomever else they cast will be the founding Avengers.
