With all due respect to Chris Evans, ever since I was 17 (1987) I have wanted Carl Weathers to play Captain America. His role in Predator just left an impression on me that I’ll never shake. I never could quantify why I wanted to see him as the first Avenger, but it’s a feeling… something that Carl engenders whenever I see him in any role. He is larger than life and brings a gravitas to anything he does.
