That's too many characters for one film. A hard reboot doesn't necessarily mean "origin story," but it does mean wiping the slate clean. You still have to re-introduce the characters on top of the villains. It's better to have them fight one villain in the first and then maybe have them take on multiple ones in the next. You can hit the ground in a sequel in a way you really can't in the first.
