Val Kilmer Confirmed For Top Gun 2 Return

Val Kilmer Confirmed For Top Gun 2 Return

He still has frozen water in his veins. Stay tuned to Heroic Hollywood for the latest news on Top Gun: Maverick as we learn it.

Kilmer first signaled his interest in returning for the movie a year ago, shortly after it was confirmed by Cruise that the sequel was for real, no fooling, happening.

The above has yet to be confirmed by Paramount, but The Wrap's probably right on this one: over the past week, Kilmer's been spotted at the same San Diego-area hotel where the Top Gun: Maverick crew's been staying, and was also allegedly seen out on the town with noted gadabout Tom Cruise. But it appears Cruise and producer Jerry Bruckheimer were passionate about getting Top Gun 2 off the ground regardless, and Cruise's Oblivion filmmaker Joseph Kosinski is in the director's chair. Filming is already well underway - Cruise tweeted a photo announcing the project to his fans last Wednesday with the hashtag "Day 1".

Top Gun: Maverick is continuing to take shape.

Malcolm Jenkins responds to White House snub with signs
Jenkins was one of several Eagles players who said before Trump's disinvite that they would not be going to the White House. And so as players, I think it was left up to each individual what they wanted to do; they were gonna have some options.

Val Kilmer feels the need, the need for speed again.

At the end, however, Iceman told Maverick, "You can be my wing man anytime". In an Instragram post in May, Kilmer alluded to the fact that Iceman beat out Maverick for the Top Gun Trophy given to the top pilot in the original film. It is also worth mentioning here that Kilmer recently opened up about his cancer battle and recovery.

Iceman's role in the new film has not been revealed, but the story line for the Top Gun sequel follows Cruise's Maverick character as he mentors a new generation of young U.S. Navy fighter pilots.
