Pretending now that because part of the literally fake news was true we should lend random guesses credence in the future is exactly how things got THIS bad. Especially considering how many times NRS and Bruce Campbell himself had to get involved in the absurd lie. That's a waste of everyone's time and does more damage then good and you know it.....Right but didn't we also, in that same datamine, get characters that did end up being in the game? So there was good reason to believe that he was coming.
The only good reason to believe a character is in is when NRS / WB put out a trailer.
