For many years Steve Rogers and Nick Fury were close allies in the comics. In fact, Steve requested to work directly with SHIELD and had many missions with the spy agency. All of Steve's wartime team, the Howling Commandos, ended up working with SHIELD as well (remember, the comics were written in the 1960s, when the Howlers could plausibly have survived and been young enough to still be active agents). Steve met Sharon Carter, his love interest and Peggy's sister (later niece) because Sharon was a SHIELD agent. Together, Captain America and SHIELD fought the resurgent HYDRA, his old nemeses from World War II.

With the close ties Captain America/Steve Rogers has traditionally had to SHIELD, it makes perfect sense that he would have a similar relationship with Fury's group in the MCU. I don't think that the movie will be any more crowded than CA:TFA was.

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.
