Title: Top Gun: Maverick
Release date: July 12, 2019
Cast: Tom Cruise, Val Kilmer
Director: Joseph Kosinski
Tom Cruise is returning as the United States Naval Aviator LT Pete “Maverick” Mitchell, the
role that helped him on his way to becoming a major star in Hollywood. His greatest rival, Tom
“Iceman” Kazansky, will be assigned to Val Kilmer one more time. The actor Miles Teller will,
according to the rumors, be given the part of the son of Maverick’s former wingman, Goose, the
role that was carried out by Anthony Edwards in the first Top Gun.
It hasn’t been announced whether or not some other characters from the first movie are returning
to reprise their roles.
Paramount Pictures is very secretive when it comes to the story of the sequel. However, rumors
that circulate suggest that the film is going delve into the relationship between human pilots and
unmanned drones. If we are to judge by the movie’s title, Top Gun: Maverick, the sequel will
most likely focus on Pete “Maverick” Mitchell.
On May 31, Tom Cruise gave us an insight into the first day of filming Top Gun 2 Maverick by
posting a photo on his Twitter profile. On this picture, we could see the famous actor in
Maverick’s flight suit, with a big tagline “Feel the Need” which made the fans even more
impatient and eager to see the new movie.
