Don't think this is what your going for, but I think maybe Star or Wars would be a correct answer. David Prowse was the man in the suit in the original trilogy, in the prequel trilogy he was played by Jake Lloyd and Hayden Christensen, and voiced by James Earl Jones for all films. I'm not going to look it up but I'm going to assume there was probably another actor in the suit once Prowse was unable to perform his duties.

if you want to look it up to see if it fits, but not at all what I'm looking for. I tried looking for other things that fit and didn't happen to find one.

I'm trying to zoom in on the aspect of it being a single word... implies the character might be known by one name. I'm really weak on movies/TV though.

There have been five different Bonds in that time span, but I don't think there's a common denominator in the title.

I could make Holmes work if you included foreign-language films and extended the time to 2018 ...

My answer doesn't work by one year - Batman was played by Keaton, Clooney, Kilmer, and Bale in movies with Batman in the title. Ben Affleck in Batman v Superman came out in 2016.
