    Not sure if anything good will come out of this... but both Cruise and Val Kilmer are confirmed

    Val Kilmer is returning as Iceman for Top Gun 2

    I hope the script writers start working on quotable lines right away, because it’s not the dogfight scenes i’ll be going to see.

    I can already predict this I reckon.

    A cyber attack renders all but the older F-15s (or whatever they were) useless and Maverick and Iceman return to fuck up some russkies.

    There's no Kelly McGillis because she's too old for Hollywood to cast as a leading lady, so Tom Cruise has a hot young love interest 20 years his junior.

    Goose returns as a force ghost.

    Its awful, but Danger Zone plays and I'll forgive them the rest.

    But that's so unrealistic!

    I reckon Goose washes up on a beach somewhere a la Harold Bishop.

    *waves break on a beach of raw emotion*
    Goose: I lived the way of the Air Force..
    *pan to scuttling crab*
    Goose: ...but I'm an army man now
    Maverick: Goose! The Army write checks that the Government Accountability Office won't cash
    Goose: It's where I found... salvation.
    Maverick: *blank look*
    Goose: I mean I'm in the Salvation Army.
    Maverick: You ejected out of a plane in 1986, but the real ejection was out of my heart, forever
    Goose: *erotic tuba solo*

    Doesn't Tom Cruise have enough money yet?

    Mere money can't fill his hyper-inflationary ego.

    Apparently Danger Zone is getting the re-recording treatment too.

    Looking forward to two hours of Admiral Maverick getting deep into a whole heap of epic Powerpoint presentations at Pentagon budget meetings!

    I am totally up for seeing this movie, as long as it incorporates the fact that Tom Cruise and Val Kilmer are about 15 years older than the oldest possible age you could expect to see anybody piloting a fighter jet - and that the junior pilots they are dealing will probably be demoralised by decades of endless wars with very few clear targets and a high risk of civilian casualties.

    Any chance of getting Ken Loach to direct?

    Not in the US forces. USAF and USN 3 Stars still fly fast jets in their mid 50s. The film is going to be absolutely fucking awful, that's a given, but not because Maverick is too old.

    The RAAF have a serving commissioned officer who is a Hawk QFI and 65 years old!

    might be good if tongue is in cheek, but I don't think I've ever seen cruise take the piss out of himself/that era/etc before.

    What's the point. It was alright, at the time but has dated badly.

    I think there's an element of taking the piss out of himself in 'Edge Of Tomorrow'.

    It is. I'd reckon more like 25 to 30 years younger...
  28. I'd like it to be really subversive. Maverick feels hard done by and disillusioned over the years and has gravitated towards alt right militia types and decides to fly a suicide mission smack bang into his old base. Val Kilmer reluctantly has to take him out with some snappy dialogue. RATM reform to cover Dangerzone, of course.
