I also talked about U2 tonight. I teased that there is a connection between Bono and the director of Batman Forever, Joel Schumacher. Here’s the story: Schumacher wanted Bono to play a role in the film…not a main character…but he wanted him in a crucial scene. Bono and Schumacher worked on a scene, but they couldn’t seem to find a place to put it in the film. Not wanting to delay the film or confuse the audience, they decided to scrap the scene. Schumacher still wanted Bono and U2 involved in some way, so they offered an outtake from their Achtung Baby album, “Hold Me Thrill Me Kiss Me Kill Me” for the soundtrack. Schumacher loved it, and the rest is history. The music video for the song is below.
