That synopsis seems to indicate (at least) two separate plots going on. First, he "battles to save Earth and all the Nine Realms from a shadowy enemy that predates the universe itself. In the aftermath of Marvel’s “Thor” and “Marvel’s The Avengers,” Thor fights to restore order across the cosmos." That sounds very much like the debut of Thanos, and the writers may make him even more ancient than the comics book do.

Then, you get a deliberate in: "and then...." "but an ancient race led by the vengeful Malekith returns to plunge the universe back into darkness." As in, the second threat emerges with Malekith, Kurse and the Dark Elves.
Well you STILL have Those who sit above in Shadow as well. I mean there IS a stone Tablet in Odin's Vault about them, Dark Evles might just be the tip of the Dark World.

Edit: also those demons that attack Beta Ray Bill's homeworld......

Responsibility, Duty, Honor these are not
mere virtues to which we must aspire
they're every soldier every King.
