I have friends who aren't comic fans but enjoy the Marvel films and when explaining Sharon and Steve to them, the general feeling from them is that they think its bizarre. Maybe there's a similar feeling with TPTB at Marvel Studios and they've decided to see if the general audience accepts it. Of course ultimately the studio will do what it wants and it may not matter what anyone else thinks.

And as for the kiss. I see everyone talking about the possible context but the fact is that the writers and whoever else decided that BW/Steve would share a least 1 kiss. And regardless of the context if your male and female lead share a kiss in a movie it usually means something.
Welcome to the Hype, HamBone!

Your point about Sharon's blood relationship to Peggy is well taken. That has been discussed on the forum, with some holding that it is unsavory for Steve to romance related women and others believing that it doesn't make any difference. For me, the Steve/Peggy/Sharon triangle* has always been bizarre and far too close to something from a soap opera or an episode of Jerry Springer to be acceptable.

* Back in the day, this was an actual love triangle of sorts, with the 2 years older Peggy the perpetual sob sister on the outside looking in at Steve & Sharon.

It’s something that’s easy to take for granted, growing up in the United States as a white male, that my cinematic heroes look like me...It’s something that over the course of these ten years, having a certain amount of power over what type of movies are made and what type of actors we hire, I want everybody to have that feeling. We don’t take it for granted that people want to see themselves reflected in our heroes and our characters.
