Every programming language has its pros and cons and over time becomes suited for certain kind of development. No language replaces any other language ...

Well, if we talk about a great enough time period, most languages will be replaced, at least at the general usage level.
I still hope that JS becomes the browser version of Java bytecode. Any day now!

For the browser we have been stuck on JS, or at least compiling to JS for a while now. With WASM there finally seems an alternative, although currently you still need a bit of JS.

Yes, I don't think Java is going to be replaced
