Dear Marvelous Movies,
In Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness, it looks like one of Dwight K. Schrute’s longtime nemeses, Jim Halpert, is killed midway through the movie. Could it be that this was Dwight’s Endgame all along?
Great question! We think it’s a bit of a stretch to say that killing Mr. Fantastic was Dwight’s Endgame. Remember, there is more than one Jim.
ND: Oh, you’re referencing the multiverse theory! Do you think there is a Jim in every universe?
MM: Maybe, but there are also multiple versions of Jim! Remember Asian Jim? He is currently on Earth-616 and is a sometime ally/sometime nemesis to Wanda Maximoff. And he’s probably not the only Jim on Earth 616 who Dwight might target!
ND: Wait, who else is there?
MM: Well, we think he probably isn’t a fan of Agent Everett K. Ross. That’s just a guess, though. Call it a gut instinct. For that matter, Doctor Strange seems to alternatively consider him an invaluable ally on some days and on other days, a thief sneaking in to steal his treasure.
ND: Wow! Who knew so many of Dwight’s nemeses make up the MCU?
MM: Robert California did, and he promptly tried to shut it down.
ND: So, are there any other villains from another of my favorite TV shows I need to worry about infiltrating the MCU?
MM: That depends. Are you a Community fan?
ND: I just checked, and I do have a pulse.
