‘Top Gun: Maverick’ Casts Miles Teller Opposite Tom Cruise as Goose’s Son

‘Top Gun: Maverick’ Casts Miles Teller Opposite Tom Cruise as Goose’s Son

According to Variety, Miles Teller (Fantastic Four) has won the coveted role of Goose's son.

Precisely how Teller's will fit into the Top Gun: Maverick story, however, remains to be seen.

Top Gun: Maverick will match the same style and tone as the original film.

"I feel the need..." he wrote, referring to a famous line from the '80s action flick, which Maverick says to Goose. Kosinski also worked with Teller on the firefighter film Only the fearless, where Teller starred alongside Josh Brolin, so it makes sense that Teller would be joining his latest production. The film will be set in a world of drone technology and will explore the end of the era of dogfighting.

Cruise first confirmed the anticipated sequel previous year, and last June confirmed the film's title in an interview with Access Hollywood.

How excited you'll be about all this will depend on how excited you are about Miles Teller in general, or the idea of a Top Gun sequel.

Starring alongside Cruise and Teller will be Val Kilmer, reprising the role of Iceman from the first Top Gun. Now, it appears that Goose's son will be joining the sequel.

Actor Glen Powell himself had some light fun over the news, tweeting: "I'm taking down all the Tom Cruise posters in my bedroom".

Other frontrunners included Nicholas Hoult and Glen Powell but Teller has landed the gig. Maybe, I'll leave one. Cruise, Jerry Bruckheimer and Skydance CEO David Ellison will produce the film.
