We’ve had at least a dozen actors portraying Ebenezer Scrooge throughout all the various adaptations of A Christmas Carol, but God forbid a second actor portrays a popular comic book character. Yeah, I fail to see the logic in getting that worked up. Perhaps the differences in cases like Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron Man or Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine is longevity, that it FEELS impossible to recast those roles because we’ve become so used to their portrayals.
