The art, which was screenshotted and reposted by @BewareCreepyVAs, shows the character in what is claimed to be the Separate Ways portion of the unannounced game.
A later tweet from the same account claimed to have corroborating evidence of Douglas sharing the artwork with multiple fans and urging them not to repost it publicly.

Actor DC Douglas is alleged to have shared the image with more than one fan via direct message on Twitter. Although it’s not clear how authentic the image is, shortly after it began spreading on social media Douglas appeared to have deleted his Twitter account.
UPDATE 29/11/21: Responding to the claims in several Facebook posts, Douglas said he’s not currently involved in any Resident Evil games with publisher Capcom. “I am not hired by Capcom for any RE games as of today,” he wrote.
He also denied sharing any confidential material in a statement posted on Instagram.
“I have announced nothing, posted nothing and have repeatedly stated that I am not under any contract with Capcom (RE4 or otherwise),” he said. “I won’t be commenting further on any RE4 rumours because I have 2 cats that really need my attention. I excitedly await RE4 news just like the rest of you!”
ORIGINAL STORY CONTINUES: VGC has reached out to Capcom for comment and will update this story when we receive a response.
Little had been shared publicly about M-Two, but people with knowledge of the company said it was partly funded by Capcom and comprised of some former PlatinumGames employees, including developers from the Metal Gear Rising and Bayonetta 2 teams.
However, multiple sources later indicated, following a key project review late last year, it was decided that M-Two’s role on RE4’s remake would be significantly reduced.
Capcom’s Division 1 – the internal team responsible for Resident Evil and Devil May Cry games – has now been brought in to lead the RE4 project, VGC reported earlier this year.
Sources said at the time that the Resident Evil 4 Remake would now be partially rebooted under the new mandate, which could see its release delayed by as much as a year to 2023.
