Found this Schumacher quote regarding Bono's involvement in Nipples Forever, uh, I mean Batman Forver.

‘I met with Bono while I was putting together Batman Forever. He’s an enormous fan of the Tim Burton/Michael Keaton Batman films and we talked for a long time about him appearing in mine. But we had Jim Carrey playing The Riddler and Tommy Lee Jones as Harvey Two-Face and sadly there really wasn’t enough room for another baddie. He understood my reasoning and then he wrote that fabulous song for us which was wonderful.’

Batman Begins, in my opinion, is the best superhero movie to come out. Ever.
The problem with Burton's versions were that he took too many liberties with the Batman storyline. For instance changing the killer of Bruce Wayne's parents to Joker just to fit in with the first movie storyline.

It's odd that Bono sounded like he was interested in getting into some acting, but other than playing himself in that movie, Entropy, he hasn't done any of that--he probably has too much going on with family, charity, and music.

Oh and didn't Larry want to be an actor, too?

I think it would have been a waste of Mr Macphisto to put him in the movie. Then people wouldn't get the whole premise of him being in ZOO TV.

Yeah, how would've they had him in there?

as a cameo or something?

playing in the band in the scene where Bruce goes into the Mindreading machine thingy?

I mean really, MacPhisto would've made that movie 10 times more watchable
