I think it comes down to individual situations. Look at Chris Evans – he’s THE definitive Captain America, but before that he was Johnny Storm. When he was Johnny Storm, nobody cared because that character was not well established. But now after he has established himself as Captain America, I can’t imagine him playing Superman for instance. The same applies to characters. It’s going to be hard for anyone to take over as Captain America after Evans steps aside, same with Iron Man, same with Wolverine. It’s not impossible, but it’s a massive uphill challenge to step in to those rolls after they have been so well established by the previous actors.
