But we don't know if Thor was even referring to Thanos.
Why would Malekith talk about Thanos? The immediate threat is Malekith, possibly Thanos is the one pulling his strings. How would Heimdal, and Thor know this enemy is Thanos? I think Malekith's plans are to release Surtur, and he probably makes that clear. This enemy, Surtur, the one who is going to bring back the darkness, or whatever, would be THE threat.
It's gotta be Odin, knowing about Surtur. There is no reason for Heimdal and Thor to be talking about Thanos. Unless he shows up in the movie. Which I doubt he will, this movie probably won't be Thanos heavy.
How would Thor and Heimdall know the enemy is (speculatively) Thanos? By beating it out of Loki, of course.
Look, you can't just sweep Thanos under the rug. Loki's entire raison d'etre in The Avengers was Thanos. Thor specifically asked him in the movie: "Who gave you this power? This knowledge?" In TDW, Loki will stand trial for his sins, and he will most definitely have to reveal his source. Then there's the whole "no barren moon" threat that The Other delivered to Loki. Thanos *is* coming after him --- that is *firmly* established in The Avengers.
