Well, there's the Dark Dimension, ruled by Dormammu; which certainly could be a setup for the Doc Strange movie. Plus, Dormammu and Surtur share enough similarities in appearance that it *could* be that the MCU wants to create an amalgamation of the two.
And Chthon ("The Other") could still be a part of all this, and if so, his presence could point towards Mt. Wundagore and the Maximoffs in Avengers 2 (plus, "The Other" has already appeared in Avengers 1, although there's never been any confirmation that Denisof's character *is* the comic-book "Other" --- i.e., Chthon).
The Ether definitely sounds like comic-book darkforce:
