Recently, Mark was interviewed and said, “Everyone wants to know; there was a lot of confusion. Yeah, I can’t say anything particular about that. There was a lot of scheduling conflict. And I can’t say anything.”
The YouTuber did not directly answer yes or no, but instead gave a highly nebulous response that begs more questions than it answers. If he does make a cameo appearance, though, only time will tell.
