It isn't totally silly but that excuse is even worse than the stampede one. You can't just assume Toei is having this conspiracy project whenever the predictions fail.
Toei executive: We don't have anything planned right now and we'll be honest when asked directly.
Toei employee: But some fans don't believe those statements and keep contacting us on social media. Could we "leak" information so that they would leave us alone when it's proven false?
Toei executive: Technically we can't dictate what you say in private messages so it's fine as long as you're not giving away any actual confidential information.
That makes no sense though.
1. If this was some executive's idea then the Stampede issue (or all of the unexpected situations throughout this year) shouldn't have been such a shock. We're either not knowing what's going on or left hanging until the last minute constantly. This would make sense if all of their leaks were in the Philippines but that's not the case and there's like 17+ sources. There shouldn't be any excuse. Especially if one of them was an executive like you're saying.
2. Why would they waste time posting shady leaks instead of making an announcement saying that 2.0 is confirmed but just not being worked on at the moment?
3. Now that I think about it, That producer for the Broly movie said exactly
that. As of right now there's nothing to prove that he's wrong, infact, the past denial the officials have been saying and the fact that there's no evidence of the animation being put into play proves him right. Are you going to tell me some half baked theory about Toei wasting their time lying to us is more believable than the staff holding the anime so they can make another movie?
4. People that believe this theory tend to ignore how weird it sounds that three competent adults fell for it and continued to fall for it all year and some of last year even with the hole filled excuses their sources gave them. It sounds odd that we're able to smell foul play in these excuses and they couldn't despite getting them first.
