The sequel to Top Gun titled “Top Gun: Maverick” is just a few months away from us.
Almost three decades ago, the franchise’s first movie shook the world. Since then, it has been one of the best classic movies out there. And it seems like the franchise is not slowing anytime sooner because now we have a confirmed release date for Top Gun 2. The movie was initially supposed to release in 2019, but Covid 19 got in the way. Since then, it has suffered a lot, but hopefully, we’ll get to watch it in theatres in 2022!
The movie features Tom Cruise in the titular role of Pete “Maverick” Mitchel. To put it simply, the film is about skilled pilots whose flying tactics are superior. There is a good school which teaches these skills to the trainees. However, when Maverick gets enrolled into Top Gun Naval Fighter Weapons School, he finds it challenging to fit into the environment. Why? Guess you’ll have to watch the movie to find out!
Top Gun: Maverick Release Date
Top Gun: Maverick will be released in the United States and Canada on May 27, 2022! But in case you can’t watch it in theatres, anything to worry about because the movie will become available on Paramount+ for streaming after 45 days!
Top Gun: Maverick Cast
The star-studded cast of Top Gun 2 accounts for its popularity. You’ll be seeing many old faces returning to the screens. The official line-up contains the following actors:
- Miles Teller
- Jennifer Connelly
- Jon Hamm
- Glen Powell
- Lewis Pullman
- Ed Harris
- Val Kilmer
- Monica Barbaro
- Charles Parnell
- Danny Ramirez
- Manny Jacinto
- Bashir Salahuddin
- Jay Ellis
- Jake Picking

Maverick and Iceman will reunite, but unfortunately, we don’t know details about their reunion because the director refused to speak about them. Hence you can expect a lot of drama from Top Gun: Maverick!
Another most asked question was about Maverick. Has he changed? Or is he the same old Maverick which we last saw decades ago? Well, we’ll get a clear idea once the movie premieres, but just for the sake of fandom, Kosinki revealed:
“He keeps that old Ninja under a tarp in the hangar and still wears those Ray-Ban aviators. He’s the best at what he does, and he’s given his whole life to aviation. But that has come at a personal cost, and Maverick has to confront some things from his past and reconcile with them. It’s a rite-of-passage story, much like the first film was. But this is a man now at a different stage of life.”
Top Gun: Maverick Plot
The official synopsis for Top Gun 2 gave us a great deal of information. Maverick will be back from where he started his journey. It will genuinely be a nostalgic journey!
Plenty of time has passed since we last saw Maverick but don’t expect him to be less passionate about his job. We’ll get to see our best aviator in his best shape. He’ll serve as an instructor passing on his wisdom to the next generation of aviators in the sequel. The most exciting bit is that he’ll be in love with someone in the upcoming movie! That is some first-class character development.
One of the trainees under him is Rooster. And the plot twist is that he’s the son of his late friend Goose. It will cause problems for him, and once again, Maverick will have to deal with his past. But we are hoping now it won’t get ugly.
Top Gun: Maverick Trailer
The first trailer for the movie came back in 2019. Since then, a lot of clips have been revealed. We are not sure if the creators will release any more footage. But if they do, we’ll let you know!
