Jerry Bruckheimer Revealed That Val Kilmer Will Be In ‘Top Gun: Maverick’

“Top Gun: Maverick” producer Jerry Bruckheimer revealed that Val Kilmer, who played Iceman in the original film, will be returning for the highly anticipated sequel.  He’ll join Tom Cruise, who is dusting off the role that made him famous in 1986, for a sequel that sees Maverick training a group of young, fresh top gun pilots, including his old flight buddy Goose’s son. However, after dropping teaser trailers for the movie, Kilmer is nowhere in sight.  Despite keeping the actor’s role a secret, Bruckheimer told Yahoo Entertainment in no uncertain terms, “No spoilers, but he’s in the movie.”  Unfortunately, it seems fans may have to wait quite a bit longer to figure out in what capacity Kilmer comes back to the story as the film, which was originally scheduled for a June 24 release date has been pushed back to Dec. 23 due to the coronavirus pandemic shutting things down on many major film and TV productions.
