Tropes & Trivia in his works:
- Production Posse: He collaborated with Jason Blum, Ethan Hawke, James Ransone, Paul Harris Boardman, and most importantly, C. Robert Cargill, who wrote his 3 directed films with him together.
- What Could Have Been: He parted ways with Marvel Studios over major Creative Differences regarding Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, and Sam Raimi replaced him in the director's chair. He is still credited on it as "executive producer", though that's really just a glorified Special Thanks for setting the template.
