    It's not gonna feel like Top Gun without F-14s.

    And somebody better put Val Kilmer on a diet and a treadmill.

    One of the few films where Michael Ironside was technically a good guy, if not a nice guy. The movie gets points for that if nothing else.

    I'll see this one.

    Love the Tomcat, BUT would love to see the Super Hornets mixing it up.

    Val can either appear as "Ice Block" or as the Aircraft Carrier.

    If they had waited any longer it would have had to be "Top Gum".

    Tom Cruise'll be on a desk job since the F14 got scrapped and gets recruited to train drone pilots no doubt with tons of terrible CGI and no military help filming.

    I will see this. I just hope that they can find a friendly country to lend them some real Migs for this one. The aircraft buff in me can't stand them using F-5s again. I can't even watch the original as an adult any more because of that. :lol BTW, the Top Gun wikipedia says the sequel will use F-35s and Maverick starts out as a F-35 test pilot.

    Careful now... What else is he gonna do on those Hot Summer Nights? Do you want him to walk Through The Fire to a Destination Unknown just to see Heaven In Your Eyes? I don't know about you, but if I were him, I wouldn't let you Lead Me On to such a Danger Zone. Instead, I'd stop off at my favorite buffalo chicken joint, Mighty Wings, and have a cold one.

    These days the CGI animators can make the Millennium Falcon dogfight with TIE-fighters, at low altitude over the desert in broad daylight.

    I don't think it will be a problem to make the Top Gun 2 enemy planes look like real MIGs.

    The Final Countdown is 1000 times better. Would rather see a sequel to that!

    I doubt I will ever see a fighter pilot film done right in the modern era.
    Vietnam or Korea would lent itself to some remarkable material, but alas.

    Chronologically, that'd pose a problem.

    In 1986, Goose's kid was approximately five years old or thereabouts. If the sequel were present day, Scott Bradshaw would be 34 years old.

    Kinda late in life to decide on a career as a military pilot I would think...

    Okay, so Goose's kid is all grown-up and already a fighter pilot. Or maybe a drone pilot.

    Or they fudge the timeline. Big deal.

    I'm with you, but well uh this is the new Navy so who knows...

    Still I'd rather have them pay a friendly country to lend them some Migs. I know we cross train with several former Soviet countries because they fly Russian aircraft. I'm not sure if they ever come to the U.S. for that though.

    Val Kilmer playing beach volleyball. His skin glistening as he oozes pure butter, a bead of sweat trickles between his Man-*. After that the Jet CGI could be crap and no one would notice having gouged out their eyes.

    So much has changed since.
    Time for a modern re-imagining, Maverisha, the transgendered fighter pilot.
    Tom Cruise is up to this task.
    But keep the awesome flight deck crowd celebrations going on when your still recovering aircraft
    in combat, as nod to the original for tradition.

    There's the explanation. Tom Purged his bad Thetans, and they went over and inhabited Val Kilmer.

    The caption says F-16, but the planes are F-15's

    Re: Tom Cruise is reprising "Maverick" role in Top Gun sequel

    Not impossible since there are members of NATO now that fly MiGs and Sukhois and not to mention that since the Desert Storm we have a few of our own, but we could definitely ask some friends and borrow their MiGs and Sukhois.

    Given that it's 30 years later, wouldn't Maverick be a little old to be still flying? At this point wouldn't he be a 4 stripe Captain and be either a CAG or the skipper of a carrier?

    - - - Updated - - -

    Not just F-15s but F-15E Strike Eagles.

    I see two options:
    1. He's running the school
    2. He's taking over Michael Ironside's role.

    Outside chance it is his kid that goes to the school, does horrible so he has to go there and straighten him out.

    It's an original idea if it's going to be a continuation and not a redo.

    It probably won't unless Scientology doesn't believe in manned flight.

    Actually Val Kilmer did an interview and responded to someone poking about his weight and he said he's gotten down to 165 recently.

    Captain Pete "Maverick" Mitchell is now Commanding Officer of Top Gun at Lemoore NAS in California. He relocates the base to MCAS Miramar after some sort of attack on Lemoore destroys the base. Now he must rally the troops at Top Gun currently flying F22-Raptors. He moves to become the CAG on board the USS Gerald Ford. Working with the former enemy Mother Russia must now come to the aid of the US and assist in the destruction of whomever is deemed the enemy!! And of course he now must command his hot headed son and Goose's son who is now a LCDR and Squadron Leader.

    Or something like that!!!

    I feel the need.............the need for SPEED!!!!

    It needs an all-female cast this time. And preferably a director who didn't want the project.



    Funny thing is, if this was happening in the late 90s then Michael Bay would have TOTALLY have gotten the job. But today, after another 20 years of making movies like this, with very good overall box office average, I doubt MB will even make the short list of possibilities.
