[[wysiwyg_imageupload:6511:]]Earlier, Robert Redford confirmed himself that he is going to have a role in Captain America 2, "The Winter Soldier," with the character said to be a high-ranking senior Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Turns out, though, that Robert Redford will be the senior ranking S.H.I.E.L.D Agent i.e. the head of the secret outfit.
In a press junket for The Company You Keep, the actor was asked (via CBR) about his role in Captain America 2, with Robert Redford responding, "Well, the head of S.H.I.E.L.D. The head of S.H.I.E.L.D.”
Since Robert Redford is the head of S.H.I.E.L.D that would make him Samuel L. Jackson's Nick Fury's boss.
The Russo Bros. are directing Captain America: The Winter Soldier which has an April 4th, 2014 release date and stars Chris Evans and Anthony Mackie as The Falcon.
