Tom Cruise Teases a ‘Very Special’ Reunion with Val Kilmer in Top Gun: Maverick

Top Gun 2 will reunite Maverick and Iceman in what’s said to be a very special scene that will leave fans satisfied.

The new sequel Top Gun: Maverick will soon finally land in theaters, and Tom Cruise has been speaking about what it was like to bring the movie to life while promoting its release. One aspect of the sequel that has many fans of the original excited is that it also brings back Val Kilmer‘s Iceman alongside Cruise’s Maverick. It has been previously reported how Cruise was adamant about getting Kilmer involved in Top Gun 2 as such an important part of the first film.

Early reviews have lent some high praise to the scenes reuniting Cruise and Kilmer. Cruise says the first scene in particular that reunites the two is especially special. Of course, he can’t divulge any specific spoilers as to what that scene entails, but it definitely sounds like Top Gun fans will enjoy it. Here’s what Cruise said about working with Kilmer in new scenes for Top Gun: Maverick, per Entertainment Tonight.


“With the first one, I really rallied hard for him to make the movie. And the kind of talent that he has, and you see that scene, it’s very special. This is very special.”

Director Joseph Kosinski was also thrilled about getting Kilmer to appear in the movie. Similarly, he previously told Total Film that the scene where Cruise and Kilmer reunite as Maverick and Iceman was something “really special” and even one of his favorite parts.

“That was a huge, huge get — having Val come back to play Iceman. To get to work with an actor of that caliber, to see the chemistry, the camaraderie between him and Tom, and to have those two characters reunite in this film, was a really special moment, and one of my favorite parts of the film.”
