Not die during filming but you do have to worry about longevity. A trilogy of movies takes close to a decade from start to finish. That's why they try to go younger. Bale, Cavill, Jackman, Tobey, Routh, Garfield, Hemsworth, Evans, etc, etc. Exceptions to the rule do happen but they are few and far between. Plus that means either the actor will do anything for the role or the studio is hungry for them.

Physicality is still an important aspect though. Look at Bruce Willis, Stallone and Schwarzenegger's recent movies. You can tell they're just not agile anymore. Again, if you're ok with that that's your prerogative. I prefer to see these characters not look wooden or incapable of superheroic feats.
