Saraha Michelle Gellar says James Gunn’s original script called for Daphne and Velma to share an intimate kiss in the live-action sequel.
Before James Gunn was the co-Head of DC Studios, he investigated bizarre happenings alongside Mystery Incorporated for 2004’s Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed. Scooby and his gang saved Coolsville from an army monsters they had defeated in the past. This family-friendly adventure was a great one. While the film’s final cut is safe for kiddies, Sarah Michelle Gellar, who plays Dahpne in the movie, says Gunn’s original script was racier, and the cast was down to make it happen.
Speaking with “Watch What Happens Live,” Gellar says Gunn shot an intimate kiss between her character and Linda Cardellini’s Velma. “There was a hot kiss. It was cut. “ Gellar stated that there was a real kiss between Daphne, Velma. “I feel like the whole world wants to see it.” Gellar added. It’s not where I know it.”
Gellar added. “Daphne was having a fight with Fred, and I yell at him: ‘That ascot makes it look gay!’ I slammed the door . They also cut that. That was probably the reason I signed up for the movie. It’s something that everyone has thought about for a while. There has always been an implied connection between Fred and both parties. It all got cut.”[at him]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dIrWr1kGBLg
Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed align with Gunn’s 2020 tweets, in which he revealed Velma was gay in his original script. Gunn stated that Velma was gay in 2001’s original script. Gunn also spoke about Cardellini’s version of the super-intelligent super sleuth. “But the studio just kept watering it down and watering it down, becoming ambiguous (the version shot), then nothing (the released version) and finally having a boyfriend (the sequel).”While Velma presents as straight in the final cut of Gunn’s film, she identifies as gay in 2021’s Scooby-Doo movie,
Trick or Treat Scooby-Doo. The reveal caused a stir online, with many fans celebrating the milestone. Mindy Kaling’s Velma in the HBO Max animated series Velma also presents the character as a member of the LGBTQA+ community, doubling down on what we’ve all suspected for decades.Should Warner Bros. have collected their stones and let Gunn film his original script?
