Velma officially declared herself a lesbian
Stills from the new movie with the concept of Halloween “Trick or Treat, Scooby-Doo!”, show the famous member of Mystery Inc. Velma Dinkley is speechless, blushing and her glasses fogging up when she meets costume designer Coco Diablo. The snaps, which of course went viral on Twitter, confirming suspicions that Scooby fans have had for decades.
Of course, the clip of Velma confessing this to her best friend Daphne, who tells her she didn’t know her boyfriends were convicted of felonies, has also gone viral. “Boy, what guy? Who has time for this? But who am I kidding? I love it. What am I going to do;”Velma admits.
History of Velma’s sexuality
It’s no longer a secret among Scooby-Doo fans and creators that Velma is a lesbian. Even James Gunn, who wrote the first live-action films, and Tony Cervone, who served as supervising producer on Mystery, Incorporated, confirmed the character’s sexuality, but failed to officially bring it to life on screen.
In 2020, Gunn tweeted that he “tried” to make Velma a lesbian in his action films:
“In 2001, in my original script, Velma was clearly a lesbian.”He wrote. “But the studio kept teasing that it would be ambiguous (filmed version), then nothing (released version) and finally boy (continued).
During Pride Month 2020, Tony Cervone posted on Instagram:
“I’ve said this before, but Velma from Mystery Incorporated is not bisexual. He is a gay. We always planned for Velma to be a little out of character when she dated Shaggy, because that relationship wasn’t right for her, and it was unspeakably hard for her to understand why. There are hints in this mermaid episode as to why, and if you follow Marcy’s entire arc, it seems as clear as it was 10 years ago. I don’t think Marcy and Velma had time to act on their feelings during the main timeline, but after the flashback they became a couple. You may not like it, but that was our intention.”
