It is Confirmed That Velma Will Be a Lesbian in the Upcoming Scooby-doo Film!

Fans of Scooby-Doo have long held the opinion that Velma is homosexual. She will encounter a gay man in the upcoming Scooby-Doo film Trick or Treat.

Velma from the Scooby-Doo animated series is now recognized as a lesbian. Variety says that clips from the next Scooby-Doo movie, “Trick or Treat Scooby-Doo!” show the Mystery Inc member looking googly-eyed and awestruck when he meets costume designer Coco Diablo. These clips have gone viral on Twitter, validating the long-held concerns of the “Scooby” fan base.

One tweet with nearly 100,000 likes stated, “OMG lesbian Velma finally.” The homosexuality of Velma has long been an unrevealed fact among fans and “Scooby-Doo” creators. Even the writers of the early live-action movies, James Gunn and Tony Cervone, and the supervising producer of the “Mystery Incorporated” series, were able to confirm the character’s sexuality, but they were never able to make it explicit on screen, according to Variety.

According to a tweet from Gunn in 2020, he “tried” to make Velma a lesbian in the live-action films. He wrote, “Velma was explicitly gay in my first script in 2001. But the studio just kept diluting it, making it vague (in the version shot), then nothing (in the version that was published), and ultimately having a boyfriend (in the sequel).

Variety further reports that Cervone posted on Instagram during the 2020 Pride Month, “I’ve mentioned it before, but Velma from “Mystery, Inc.” is not bisexual. She is gay. Velma dating Shaggy was always going to be a little out of character for her because she knew the relationship wasn’t right for her and was having a hard time understanding why.”

He added the following in his Instagram post: “When you see the entire Marcie arc, it appears as clear as we could have made it ten years ago. There are indications about the why in that episode with the mermaid. Marcie and Velma may not have had enough time in the normal timeline to act on their affections, but after the reset, they are in a relationship. It’s possible that you won’t like it, but that was our aim.”


One person on social media responded to the scene where Velma emerges from the closet by saying, “Velma Dinkley is the gay comic book character of the day! She identifies as a lesbian.” Added one more, “In October, lesbian Velma finally becomes canon. Halloween is mostly a gay people’s event.”
