Nick Bradshaw, known as “Goose.” We see Maverick face his fears as he deals with ghosts of the past.

The movie will see a host of stars. Some will be returning from the original film, and the others will be cast anew. We know for sure that Tom Cruise will be returning as Maverick. Apart from him, only Val Kilmer is confirmed to reprise his role as Iceman. He is now ranked as Vice Admiral.
Otherwise, Top Gun: Maverick will have a new generation of fighter jocks. This bunch includes Miles Teller as Bradley “Rooster” Bradshaw, Goose’s adult son, Glenn Powell as Hangman, Monica Barbaro as Phoenix, Manny Jacinto from The Good Place as Fritz, Danny Ramirez as Fanboy, and Jay Ellis as Payback.

Top Gun Maverick: Release Date Moved?
The latest news is that the release date of the movie changed. Initially, Paramount Pictures was planning to release the film on June 26, 2020. However, in a statement released yesterday, the company said the movie would release two days earlier, which makes the new release date June 24, 2020.
That means the typical Friday release is now a Wednesday release. We should expect “preview screenings” on the evening of Tuesday, June 23.
What is the reason behind this change? WE cannot say for sure, but another movie In the Heights comes out that Friday. It is expected to be a big hit. This may be the reason for the change.
