Here is the first piece of bad news about Top Gun: Maverick.
Miles Teller will appear in the film along with Tom Cruise, and it is currently filming. Cruise is reprising his role as the hot-shot pilot who goes by the call sign ‘Maverick’. Val Kilmer will also return.
Teller somehow got past a list of names including Nicholas Hoult, Glen Powell and Dylan O’Brien for the key role of the son of ‘Goose’ (Anthony Edwards), Maverick’s former wingman whose accidental death partway through the first film becomes a major character motivator.
Joseph Kosinski will direct the film.
