Tom Cruise Reveals the Title for 'Top Gun' Sequel

The long-awaited "Top Gun" sequel officially has a title.

Tom Cruise, 54, revealed the name to ‘Access Hollywood’ while promoting his latest film, ‘The Mummy.’

It's not going to be called 'Top Gun 2,' it's going to be called 'Top Gun: Maverick,'" Cruise revealed. "I didn't want a number. You don't want a number. You don't need a number."

"We're going to have the same tone that we had for the first one. Stylistically, it's going to be the same," he said. "It's going to be a competition film like the first one, and it's going to be in the same vein, the same tone as the first one. So a progression for Maverick."

“There’s going to be aircraft carriers,” Cruise added. “There’s going to be jets.”
