God Of Thunder Battles A Taser (And Loses) In First <i>Thor</i> Clip

Marvel and Paramount Pictures have released a new clip from Thor showing the thunder god's undignified, yet comical, arrival on Midgard, and his first encounter with modern mortals -- and their technology.

It's a brief snippet, but it showcases the movie's lighthearted element, as well as stars Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Stellan Skarsgård and Kat Dennings. And Kat Dennings' Taser, naturally.

Directed by Kenneth Branagh, Thor also stars Anthony Hopkins, Tom Hiddleston, Jaimie Alexander, Colm Feore, Joshua Dallas, Tadanobu Asano, Ray Stevenson, Idris Elba, Rene Russo, Clark Gregg and Samuel L. Jackson. It opens in 3D on May 6.
