The black hole theory could be plausible. Although not as Fenrir. It is the wolves Sköll and Hati that devour the sun and moon. Although it is Fenrir that is destined to devour Odin. So, I'm not sure how this all comes together.
It does seem however that the forces that are to come out of the gate are going to be the fire giants. The frost giants are said to arrive on a ship and Loki is going to come on another ship with the armies of the dead. The fire giants then cross the Rainbow Bridge.

In Norse mythology, Fenrir or Fenrisulfr is a wolf, the son of Loki and the giantess Angrboða. Fenrir is bound by the gods, but is ultimately destined to grow too large for his bonds and devour Odin during the course of Ragnarök. At that time he will have grown so large that his upper jaw touches the sky while his lower touches the earth when he gapes. He will be slain by Odin's son, Viðarr, who will either stab him in the heart or rip his jaws asunder according to different accounts.
Fenrir has two sons, Hati ('hate') and Skoll. Skoll chases the horses Árvakr and Alsviðr, that drag the chariot which contains the sun. Hati chases Máni, the moon. 'Skoll', in certain circumstances, is used as a heiti to refer indirectly to the father (Fenrir) and not the son. This ambiguity works in the other direction also, for example in the Vafþrúðnismál, where a confusion exists in stanza 46 where Fenrir is given the sun-chasing attributes of his son Skoll. This can mostly be accounted for by the use of Hróðvitnir and Hróðvitnirson to refer to both Fenrir and his sons.

but their original attempts at successfully gating people here, resulted in alot of mangled bodies, as is attested to in "Enki and Ninmah." They'd come through the gate and be lame, body parts all jumbled up, blind, etc. (sorta like a teleporter that isn't correctly calibrated).
