You just wrote the movie, my friend.And Maverick doesn't want his daughter to fly because it's too dangerous. Also, Maverick and Mrs Maverick split years ago and Daughter of Maverick was raised mostly by Mrs Maverick and now DoM is forcing her way into Mr Mavericks life. He has commitment issues.
I'm not afraid that they'll tear down Maverick. The action will be top notch, all real flying. Cruise has high expectations towards his crew and himself to make a great movie. Trailer looks great and I think the movie will too.No offense to anyone, but I'd say PLEASE no daddy/daughter crap. That would completely ruin the character. Maverick never married. Well, maybe. But, he's long divorced. No kids. His life is the Navy. In the air. No, "he's a bad father" nonsense. That's not what this or his story is about. I know the trend is to tear down a hero ala Han Solo and completely ruin their mystique. But, let's keep Maverick a pure icon. Please. The trailer, much to my surprise, looks fantastic. Keep it straight "Top Gun" and it'll be a hell of a ride. People want to see a larger than life Maverick flying jets; not struggling to be daddy.
Do fighter planes these days even still dogfight? I mean with all kinds of medium-range missiles, isn't it just a matter of whose radar locks on first?
I know the F-4 Phantom didn't have an onboard cannon because of that very reasoning, and it was a bad decision, but the tech has come a long way since then.
