The darkness that the synopsis refers to is not metaphorical; it is literal. This movie is about literal it says, plunging the world into darkness. Darkness is not in Surtur's skillset. It *is,* however, within the bailiwick of The Dweller in Darkness. Who predates the universe. (And who is a straight ripoff of Cthulhu, by the way.)
Didn't Thanos also try to cast the universe in darkness? He extinguished a few stars using one of the Infinity gems, IIRC.
