While still keeping it secret, he said that the first film was made iconic because of this rival duo. The relationship between Maverick and Iceman is important for the film, and how everyone would want to know how it has evolved.
On the other hand, we may and may not see some faces returning. We won’t see Anthony Edwards, but we will get to see Miles Teller playing Goose’s son Bradley Bradshaw. Another person from the original we may see not returning to the sequel is Michael Ironside, who played Lieutenant Commander Rick Heatherly. The actor told the reason to be his and the producer, Jerry Bruckheimer’s relationship, being on bad terms.
Rumors followed that Glen Powell would be seen as Goose’s son, but it is not so. Rather we will see him playing the mystery role in the film as Hangman. Jennifer Connelly will be seen playing the lead actress of the movie. Manny Jacinto will be seen playing the role of a new pilot.
