Nobody knows yet Spidey. At least nobody knows who the backups to Phoenix are in here. If someone does know, than they are not saying. We are just speculating that if Phoenix does not take the role. Other A listers will most likely be considered.
The report stated that WB's/Snyder have wanted a "slam dunk" type of actor for the main villain role all along. There are other A listers besides Phoenix that they would look at.
