-Peggy Carter’s funeral would have been more than 3 minutes long.
-Tony Stark would have given a eulogy to Peggy, having grown up admiring her, his dad’s colleague of many years, a tremendously strong female role model (the woman who approved Pepper’s hire, of course).
-Steve Rogers would not have put the moves on Peggy’s niece within a day of burying Peggy.
-Black Widow would have gotten her own movie by now.
-A big part of Bucky’s backstory/flashbacks would have been told through Natasha’s viewpoint, her memories of either working with or against The Winter Soldier in Russia and the East.
-Pepper Potts would have been in Civil War, speaking for herself.
-Wanda’s grief over her brother would still be very present. Her feelings of loss and mourning would be front-and-center for her character.
-Black Panther’s woman bodyguard would have had more than one line.
-Natasha would have told Steve that she was at Peggy’s funeral in part because she didn’t want him to be alone, but also in part to pay respects to the great Peggy Carter.
-There would be way more women in these movies. There would be women of many ages, ethnicities, sexual orientations, and nationalities in these movies. There would be many scenes of women talking to women. There would be many more scenes of women talking. And doing. And feeling. And being.

When she wasn’t telling her godson bedtime stories about Captain America, she was pulling him out of his depression when his parents were killed. Either way, Tony Stark is the son she never had and Peggy is the loving guardian that Tony always deserved.
(this is my headcanon and I’m sticking to it. Also, yes, that is baby RDJ)
