Marvel’s “Thor: The DARK World” continues the big-screen adventures of Thor, the Mighty Avenger, as 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…but an ancient race led by the vengeful Malekith returns to plunge the universe back into DARKNESS. Faced with an enemy that even Odin and Asgard cannot withstand, Thor must embark on his most perilous and personal journey yet, one that will reunite him with Jane Foster and force him to sacrifice everything to save us all.
Sorry, but that ain't metaphor.
And the synopsis don't stutter when it says "enemy that predates the universe itself." You can count on the fingers of one six-fingered hand the cosmic entities who might fit that bill (Galactus, The One Above All, Dweller In Darkness, Eternity, The Watcher, The Living Tribunal). Thanos (a Titan) and Surtur (a Fire Giant) and Malekith (a Dark Elf) and Kurse (another Dark Elf in funky armor) don't even remotely come close to "predating the universe itself."
