In an interview for Collider, Joseph Kosinski spoke of the evolution of the film and the return of Val Kilmer:

The rivalry and relationship between Iceman and Maverick is one of those things that makes that first movie so iconic,” he said. It’s a relationship that’s important to the Top Gun franchise and as a fan I’d like to see how it has evolved. working with an actor of that caliber, seeing the chemistry, the camaraderie between him and Tom, and having those two characters come together in this movie, was a really special moment and one of my favorite parts of the movie. Maverick is still the guy we remember from the first Top Gun. He keeps that old Ninja under a tarp in the hangar and still wears those Ray-Ban aviators. But that has taken a personal toll, and Maverick has to confront some things from his past and come to terms with it. with them. It’s a rite of passage story, much like the first movie. But this is a man now in a different place. He’s the best at what he does and he’s dedicated his whole life to aviation.

Anthony Edwards isn’t ruling out a Ghost Goose plot, but at least if we don’t get it, we get Miles Teller as the Goose’s son, Bradley Bradshaw. In fact, in the latest trailer, it appears that Bradley isn’t the biggest fan of Maverick. “My dad believed in you, I’m not going to make the same mistake,” he tells her. Ouch.

Michael Ironside won’t be returning as Lt. Rick ‘Jester’ Heatherly, and the actor attributes that to the fact that his relationship with producer Jerry Bruckheimer is apparently not the best. Nor Kelly McGillis as Charlotte Blackwood, because according to Bruckheimer her arc “was far behind, in the first film”. Jennifer Connelly is the female lead of the film. she plays a single mother who runs a local bar near the Marine base. She will be joined by Jon Hamm’s Vice Admiral Cyclone and Ed Harris, who plays Maverick’s overseer, a hitherto unnamed Rear Admiral.

We are finally nearing the end of the Top Gun: Maverick saga that has started since the movie was first released in 2010.
