In a complete surprise appearance on Thursday, Maverick himself, Tom Cruise, flew by San Diego Comic-Con. Cruise took the stage at SDCC and dropped the very first trailer for the upcoming film Top Gun: Maverick.
Check out the high-octane, action-packed trailer below.
In addition to the thrilling trailer, Paramount Pictures also released a stunning new poster. The poster show’s Cruise’s Maverick standing proudly displaying his patches of honor. Check out the poster below.
The original Top Gun focused on a Naval Fighter school where the best pilots go to sharpen their flying skills. Cruise plays Maverick, a cocky and, at times reckless hotshot pilot who is competing against other pilots like Iceman (Val Kilmer) to prove he is the best. The film also stars Anthony Edwards as Goose and Kelly McGillis as Charlotte.
When the sequel was first announced, original Edwards joked about reprising his role as the late Goose. He begged fans to start an online campaign for his character’s ghostly return. He joked, “Get on social media and start lobbying for Ghost Goose using this hashtag: #ghostgoose. And tell America you feel the need, the need for ghost Goose.”
With or without Ghost Goose, Top Gun: Maverick will be flying into theaters in Summer 2020.
