Tom Cruise Tweets As Production Starts On ‘Top Gun’ Sequel

Top Gun Maverick

Tom Cruise is officially back in the danger zone.

Tom Cruise has shared the first official photo from the set of the long-awaited Top Gun sequel, now titled Top Gun: Maverick.

Tom Cruise took to Twitter Thursday, posting an image of himself in character as Navy pilot Pete "Maverick" Mitchell, looking at a fighter jet. The photo includes the phrase "feel the need".

Check it out below. Previous rumors surrounding the sequel point to Maverick having to deal with a new era of pilot-less aircrafts and drones - in other words, technological advancements that don't sit well with a gut-instinct flyboy like Maverick. There is an wonderful role for Maverick in the movie and there is no Top Gun without Maverick, and it is going to be Maverick playing Maverick.

Realistically, where else are they going to go with it? The movie's director, Joseph Kosinski, has dropped some hints at how different the sequel will be from the original film. More than two years later, it has been confirmed that Top Gun: Maverick has started shooting ahead of its July 2019 release. The original film co-starred Kelly McGillis, Val Kilmer, Tom Skerritt, Anthony Edwards, and Meg Ryan.

Many fans have a find place in their heart for Top Gun, but would it work in the 21st Century?

Maybe they have a great script that has a real story to tell, but I do wonder if Top Gun 2 is about 20 years too late arriving?

What do you hope to see in the sequel?
