Miles Teller Set To Star Opposite Tom Cruise In ‘Top Gun: Maverick’

Miles Teller is ready to feel the need — the need for speed, that is! Variety announced this week that the Only the Brave star landed the role of Nick “Goose” Bradshaw’s son in the upcoming film, Top Gun: Maverick. Now fans are gearing up for a thrilling sequel.

The Best Sequel Ever?

It’s hard to produce a good movie sequel, but the team involved with Top Gun: Maverick is working hard to make a sequel the fans of the original 1986 film will love.

When Tom Cruise hinted at a movie sequel last year, fans didn’t believe it was actually going to happen. But lo and behold, the sequel is officially in production, and it will be set in a world of drone technology and fifth generation fighters. The film will also explore the end of the era of dogfighting.

So, how does Miles Teller fit into this film?

Remembering Where Things Left Off

If you remember the original Top Gun, then you should know that Goose, played by Anthony Edwards, met an untimely end when he and Maverick (Cruise’s character) flew into the jet wash ejected from Tom “Iceman” Kazansky’s (Val Kilmer) aircraft. Then, Goose fell head-first into the aircraft canopy and died.

Awkward

Goose’s son didn’t have a big role in the first film, but that’s going to change now. Because the sequel is introducing new generations, it’s safe to assume that Goose’s son is one of the new fighters who will carry on his father’s legacy.

Reaching New Fans

It’s been more than 30 years since the original film; therefore, the fanbase has changed since 1986. The upcoming sequel needs to draw in new fans. Having current stars, like the up-and-coming actor Teller, will do just the trick.

Top Gun: Maverick is set to soar into theaters on July 12, 2019.
