If the heads over at Marvel Studios feel that it'd be better if Steve ended up with Natasha in the long run and that it'd be more profitable for them than pairing him up with Sharon later on, then Sharon being a future love interest might be out of the question.
It's easier, too. If Steve and Natasha are shown as close friends, then it's a simple matter to have them take that step toward being a couple than it is to have Steve develop a relationship with Sharon, keeping in mind that Cap 3 could be the last Cap solo we'll get, so they might not even have time to go down that road.
