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."
The Beyonder might Predate the universe since he's not from our universe and space and time don't exist for him. It would be nice if marvel introduced the existence of the other gods of the Marvel universe.
