A Warner Brothers promotional e-mail appears to have spoiled a future downloadable character while informing fans of the official release of Spawn in Mortal Kombat 11. Copyright citations credit "Army of Darkness" and "Ash", reviving rumors of the impending guest character. Read on for the full story - if you dare:

The offending copyright citations [pictured above] appear at the bottom of an e-mail promoting Spawn and the related Hellspawn Jacqui and Matinee Skins Pack. Included are credits for Terminator, Joker, and Spawn license holders, with the unexpected addition of Metro-Goldwyn Mayer and Orion Pictures: rights holders for Army of Darkness - the third film in the Evil Dead series.

A crossover with Mortal Kombat 11 was expected when data-mining unearthed evidence of "Ash", and a chainsaw buzz was heared at the end of the Shang Tsung trailer, teasing then-coming announcements for additional crossover guest characters.

DC Comics' Joker ultimately appeared in the full Kombat Pack reveal, while Bruce Campbell issued a flat-out denial of Ash's inclusion. This effectively killed the rumors, even if some fans weren't convinced by the stars' colourful rebuttal.

Campbell starred in three feature films and a recent television series, Ash vs Evil Dead, as beleaguered camper cum store clerk: Ash Williams. The character battles evil zombie-like Deadites raised by reading from the Necronomicon, but has also crossed over with Freddy Krueger and Jason Voorhees in the pages of comic books.

Ash may've missed his chance to battle horror movie rivals in previous Mortal Kombat installments, but his time-displaced adventures in Army of Darkness will fit right in with Mortal Kombat 11, where the past meets the present, and undead revenants are prevelant! The licensed inclusion could also extend to Mortal Kombat Mobile, where Freddy and Jason have also appeared.

Additional downloadable content is expected, with Mortal Kombat 11 touted to have "years of content" according to WBIE President David Haddad.
