Top Gun was one of CelebNMovies247.com’s favorite movies back in 1986, which stared Tom Cruise as the hot-shot pilot Maverick. It was one of Tom’s most most beloved roles. Fans love Cruise as Maverick. And after Top Gun the world was in love with Tom.
Top Gun has lasted the test of time and to date it is still one of Cruise’s best outings critically. It was a HUGE success and talks of a sequel swirled for years, and then finally died out until last year. We heard the rumors surfacing again and now Tom Cruise has confirmed the rumors were true.

Now that it is official, Val Kilmer is ready to jump in the pilot seat and bring Iceman back. Kilmer took to social media to tell Tom he’s ready to return:
“Friends said it’s official – #TOPGUN2 was announced today. I’m ready Tom- still got my top gun plaque! Still got the moves! Still got it!”
If filming truly is set to begin within the next year, Paramount still has a heavy amount of pre-production to get through before then. Plus, there is no director attached as of yet, but we’ll probably be hearing something soon.
Top Gun 2 is currently in development and does not have a release date.
