If for some reason you’ve spent time wondering what would happen if you gave someone who lives in The Edge a futuristic weaponized glider and if it would work out alright, you can get your answer in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 apparently.

“Amazing Spider-Man 2″ star Dane DeHaan, says he based his performance as Harry Osborn — a childhood friend of Spider-Man’s alter ego who becomes the bad guy Green Goblin in the movie opening Friday — on the hipsters and “trust fund babies” he meets in Williamsburg, where the 27-year-old lives.

“I live there (so) I understand this culture,” DeHaan tells the News. “Harry is not based on any real person, but I know people he could be friends with … in Williamsburg.”

So the answer is: It would not work out alright.
