It was Canton's idea to involve Prince with the Batman movie, as his major hit prior had been Purple Rain at WB. While reviewing rushes and dailies at Pinewood, it is said that Canton would mutter "Where's Robin? Where's Robin?" angered that Ricky Addison Reed was let go and written out by Warren Skaaren prior filming.
- Canton's first film as an independt producer was Jack Frost, starring Michael Keaton, also distributed by WB.
- Canton produced Zack Snyder's 300, an adaptation of Frank Miller's comic series of the same name.
