 Predator's Carl Weathers Dies Age 76

While many of us at Alien vs. Predator Galaxy loved Carl for his performance as Dillion in Predator, he was a prolific actor who had also made an impact in another of Disney’s science-fiction franchises, Star Wars, in the role of Greef Karga in The Mandalorian.

Some of Carl’s Predator co-stars took to Twitter to share tributes to him.

The thoughts of the Aliens vs. Predator Galaxy staff and community go out to Carl Weather’s family and friends. Rest in peace, Carl.

    Caught Little Nicky on TV tonight. Watched it for a laugh. I forgot Carl Weathers shows up briefly as his character from Happy Gilmore. Sad to see another actor I enjoyed watching growing up pass away. R.I.P.

    Really sad to hear. He was a legend.

    I always thought Predator has Arnold's best acting, but it's mostly in due part because he was opposite Carl. Carl really elevated that film and it wouldn't be anywhere on the level it is without him.

    RIP. While his roles in Predator and as Apollo Creed in Rocky are his best known acting credits, Weathers have also done a lot more beyond just muscle men action roles. He has done more dramatic roles in "In the Heat of the Night" to comedic roles like in "Happy Gilmore". In recent years, younger viewers may know him for his role in the "Mandarlorian" which he also directed episodes of.

    He will be missed very much.

    I had the chance to meet Carl Weathers at a Monstermania convention when he was visiting my hometown but I missed the opportunity because I didn't have the money to attend. I wish I had met him, and I regret that I didn't. Carl Weathers was one of my childhood heroes.

    Goodbye, Carl... I'm going to miss you.
    While to most he will be remembered for his portrayal as Apollo Creed in the Rocky films.

    For for me he will always be the guy whom lost his arm and life (fictionally) while shooting a HK94 at the PREDATOR in a redemption scene PREDATOR 1987.

    Rest in peace I hope we get an iconic scene in either future of aliens or predator films but I doubt it.  :(
