If someone else dons the Iron Man armour, I'm fine with that, but don't call him Tony Stark. I still can't get over Cheadle as Rhodey, I think someone else as Tony would be the last straw. I hate recasting. Stop mixing and matching actors. If you're going to replace actors, go big or go home. Recasting is the laziest thing ever. I can think of plenty of ways they can lose Tony Stark but keep the armour.
Wow, sorry but this is a horrible idea. Kill off Tony? No thanks. If icons like Batman, Superman and Spider-Man can be replaced, then so can Iron Man. As great as RDJ is, he is not bigger than the character.
