In Avengers: Infinity War, Eitri says to Thor:

Three hundred dwarves lived on this ring. I thought if I did what he asked, they'd be safe. I made what he wanted: a device capable of harnessing the power of the stones. And he killed everyone anyway. All except me.

From the "on this ring" part, one might understand that he means there are more dwarves elsewhere. Is this correct, and if so, where do they live?

In the MCU canon comic Thor: The Dark World Prelude Issue #1 we see the troll lords attacking the planet Nidavellir. Presumably either this was later retconned or Nidavellir refers to both the planet and the forge we see in Avengers: Infinity War.

In the MCU, they are not mentioned, but in the comics, other dwarves live in Weirdworld

There are a race of dwarves that reside in Weirdworld. The Elf Tyndall of Klarn once lived with a warren of Dwarves who were besieged by the Night-Fangers. They sent him on a quest where Tyndall encountered the newly hatched Velanna.

Tyndall and Velanna later met the dwarf thief Mud-Butt who later became their ally.

The other dwarves are the Dwarves of Asgard (Nidavellir), which are the ones we see in the movies.

In the movies, Nidavellir is portrayed as a multi-ringed megastructure that orbits a dying neutron star, but in the comics, it can be seen as a whole planet.

  • hmm... found something. Looks like Black Knight is tied to Weirdworld somehow. And we'll get a new movie with the Black Knight in 2020. So maybe the dwarves will be there too? Jul 17, 2019 at 13:40
  • @ShadowWizard Maybe, that would be awesome. Jul 17, 2019 at 13:41
