Tom Cruise revealed the title for the upcoming ‘Top Gun’ sequel as ‘Top Gun: Maverick” in reference to the character he played in the original film.
The actor made the announcement during an interview with "Access Hollywood".
Cruise said that “stylistically it’s going to be same. We’re going to have the same score” from the original composer, Harold Faltermeyer.
“Aviators are back, the need for speed. We’re going to have big, fast machines. It’s going to be a competition film, like the first one… but a progression for Maverick."
‘Maverick’ was Cruise’s character’s nickname in the film in which he played Naval aviator Lt. Pete Mitchell.
Cruise wouldn't mention which members of the original film would appear in ‘Top Gun: Maverick’. He added, “We can’t talk about it, you’ve just got to see it."
