Gunn Confirms Velma Was Intended To Be Gay In ‘Scooby-Doo’ Films

James Gunn, who penned the scripts for Scooby-Doo and Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed explained that his original script for the first film made Velma (played by Linda Cardellini) “explicitly gay.” According to Gunn, the studio “just kept watering it down & watering it down, becoming ambiguous (the version shot), then nothing (the released version) & finally having a boyfriend (the sequel).” The director/screenwriter has been open about sharing changes made to the original intent of the films, mainly shifting from an R rating to a more family-friendly flick.
