Part Batman, Part Superman and All Green: The Unexpected Appeal of Martian Manhunter

J’onn J’onnz, the Martian Manhunter, isn’t exactly the most mainstream superhero in the DC Universe. Despite a relatively top tier booking in the Justice League roster, a handful of animated features, and a live action incarnation courtesy of the CW’s Supergirl and actor David Harewood, he’s not exactly the sort of character you could show to anyone on the street for immediate recognition — but what J’onn lacks in Batman or Wonder Woman level fame, he makes up for with a very specific level of relatability, unique to him among his peers. And that’s exactly what co-creators Steve Orlando and Riley Rossmo hope to tap into with his brand new limited series, Martian Manhunter, out now.

Bette Midler on Hocus Pocus’ Enduring Appeal: It Was an ‘Ugly Duckling’ and ‘Now It’s a Swan’

Bette Midler wasn’t concerned with the negative reviews Hocus Pocus initially received.

“I never read the critics,” Midler, 72, told PEOPLE and other reporters on Monday at her annual Hulaween charity event, benefitting the New York Restoration project.

In the 25 years since its releaseHocus Pocus has become a cult classic, and no one is happier than Midler.

“It was like an ugly duckling,” Midler said. “A little creature that nobody thought could do anything and now it’s a swan. It’s found its wings and it’s just flown away. I think it’s fantastic.”

Midler, who stars in the film alongside Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy, has been getting in the Hocus Pocus spirit, posting 25 images from the film to her Instagram, and recently attending Freeform’s Hocus Pocus 25th anniversary special.

During the special, Midler explained that the project ‘intrigued’ her because it allowed her to “play physical comedy and be more than a little broad.”

She also revealed that due to the film’s practical effects, she actually got to fly while making the film, which she likened to choreography and described as “one of the greatest joys I’ve ever experienced as an actor.”

Midler explained, “It’s joyful, it’s also a dance, and there’s a lot of trying to be graceful while not being sure you weren’t going to be turned upside down.”

In the past, Midler has been skeptical of attempts to remake Hocus Pocus. When it was reported that a TV reboot was being developed by Disney, Midler told PEOPLE it was “going to be cheap.”

“I’m not sure what they’re going to do with my character,” she said. “My character is very, very broad and I don’t know who they’re going to find to play that.”
