Those seem like hollow promises.
Less like "We're going to use her in several movies Marvel has in the pipeline" and more like "She's now part of the MCU. We'll see where it goes from here"
Union Jack was introduced in the last movie, but who's using him now?

It's like the same reason why they decided to cut out Mary Jane from TASM2 because she interfered to much with the Peter and Gwen romance, so they left her for the third one and it looks like they are doing the same with Sharon Carter.
The two situations aren't really the same.
Gwen and Peter are still very much involved. Gwen is very much part of Pter's life, and vice versa.
Steve and Peggy were never really involved, and Peggy has since moved on.
All that is left is for Steve to move on, and that's not so much a storyline
as much as it is a plot point. It isn't going to be taking up the whole movie, neither is Peggy going to be heavily involved for Sharon to be 'interfering'.
I agree that it makes sense that Steve doesn't jump into a relationship with Sharon, if at least for the sake for propriety.
But at the same time, making Sharon's role only an 'introduction' is all around not a good move. It is also terribly reductive.
Couldn't we have had Sharon as Steve's purely platonic pal who fights on his side, and then have that friendship turn into something more in Cap3?
