James Gunn Says Velma Was Written As Gay in 2002's 'Scooby-Doo' But The Studio Blocked It

James Gunn revealed a little known fact about 2002′s popular Scooby-Doo movie, which he wrote the script for.

Over the weekend, the 53-year-old filmmaker responded to a fan who urged him to return to the franchise and write Velma, who was played by Linda Cardellini, as gay.

Turns out, that James did – but that version of her didn’t make it to screen because the studio blocked it.

“I tried! In 2001 Velma was explicitly gay in my initial script,” James wrote back.

He explained, “But 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).”

James did say however that there are deleted scenes you can watch from the DVD that feature Velma in her original gay form.

Scooby-Doo also starred Freddie Prinze, Jr., Sarah Michelle Gellar, and Matthew Lillard as Fred, Daphne and Shaggy.

Sarah and Freddie have been married since 2002, the same year the movie was released.

Christina Applegate and Linda Cardellini are opening up about the upcoming season of their Netflix series, Dead to Me.

During their virtual conversation with SiriusXM’s Jess Cagle, the two stars talked about how filming the show can be emotionally draining, their mentors in Hollywood, how women and men improvise on set and more.

“Some days it is hard. There are emotional places that we go to over and over again that are draining after a day of crying,” Linda explains. “…it gets pretty heavy. The good news is that it feels pretty raw and pretty real which makes it, as an actor, very fun.”

Christina added that with season two, “I really lived it…” before opening up about one particular scene they did and were really emotionally invested only for the crew to have them do it all again from a different angle.
