Though it perfectly describes Dweller in Darkness, it would be odd for him to be added at this point. With Loki, Malekith/Kurse/Svartalfheim and Thanos already on the table. I'm not saying impossible, just surprising to me.
Yes, I agree that Cthulhu --- I mean, The Dweller --- would be a left-field addition to the storyline. But Malekith and Kurse sure don't fit the synopsis, and (again) it's pretty clear that the synopsis regards them as a separate threat after
this "shadowy enemy that predates the universe itself." And Surtur definitely doesn't fit *that* description. Thanos doesn't either, but he's the most likely to have his backstory revamped to qualify....but I hope to hell not. Thanos has a rich story to draw from; he doesn't need some Kirby-style pre-Big Bang Grand Cosmic Poobah addendum to make him more than he already is.

Beyonder would certainly fit the bill, and would be a literal reading of Simonson's Kurse story; so you might be on the money there. But Beyonder, classically, is something of a joke in fandom; and if he *is* going to be introduced, the first question that fanboys will ask is "OMG WHAR'S SECRET WARS?!?!?"
