While this is, in fact, official confirmation that Velma is not straight, it’s not the first time her orientation has been addressed. In an Instagram post, producer Tony Cervone previously posted a photo of Velma with a rainbow flag.
Also, in the early 2000s, James Gunn, screenwriter for the live-action films, expressed a desire to already show Velma as an openly lesbian character. However, the studio responsible for production did not accept the idea and confirmation only arrived in 2022 with the new animation.
The film premiered on October 4 with a plot developed especially for Halloween.
