Pete “Maverick” Mitchell may return in a Top Gun 3 film to instruct a new group of recruits. Or, Maverick might team up with Rooster (Miles Teller) and Hangman (Glen Powell), two pilots he met in the first sequel, to face a new enemy in the sequel. Admiral Cain (Ed Harris) mentioned replacing human pilots with a drone armada in the latest film, so it’s possible that Maverick and his crew will have to prove their worth against these pilotless machines in the sequel.
Since no story hints have been dropped as of yet, this is all conjecture. If there is a third movie, however, you can count on a lot of exciting aerial battles between Maverick and his crew. Maverick’s (Chris Pratt) romance with Penny (Jennifer Connelly) will likely continue, though they won’t be the main draw.
Top Gun 3 plot: What could Top Gun 3 be about
Top Gun Maverick, like its predecessor, doesn’t overtly set up any future movie plans, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t any drama to be mined. Pete ‘Maverick’ Mitchell returned to Top Gun to help train a new group of pilots for an impossible mission: destroying a uranium plant in the middle of nowhere. After much debate, it is decided that Maverick will be in charge of the pilots and among his crew is Rooster Bradshaw, the son of Maverick’s late best friend Goose. Most of the film’s tension stems from the rift between Rooster and Maverick, but there’s no need to worry because everything works out in the end.
The Top Gun pilots not only pull off a flawless mission but nobody gets hurt in the process. And on top of all that, Pete and his lady love Penny (Jennifer Connelly) get back together and ride off into the sunset. Thus, it is unclear how a third film would bring audiences back to Top Gun with Pete. The plot of Top Gun 2, in which he must train a new group of pilots/recruits, is unlikely to be repeated.
Though it was never explicitly stated, the tone of Top Gun, Maverick suggested that Pete’s mission would be his last. After all, Pete was grounded by his superior “Cyclone” (Jon Hamm) before pulling a stunt that put him back in the cockpit again. It’s possible, though, that a third film would explore Maverick’s retirement and his adjustment to civilian life.
Why Do We Need A top Gun 3?
This is why: Top Gun is a great time. In addition, the film’s conclusion raised questions that can only be addressed in a sequel. After making some progress toward mending their friendship, Maverick and Rooster ran into a major roadblock. We won’t give anything away, but we think we need a few more missions to figure out how this two progress.
Importantly, Maverick also introduced a new group of pilots in addition to Teller’s Rooster: Monica Barbaro’s Phoenix, Glen Powell’s Hangman, Jay Ellis’s Payback, and Danny Ramirez’s Fanboy. In order to keep you abreast of any breaking news, we will update this post regularly.

Top Gun 3 Release Date
In 36 years, Tom Cruise will be 89 years old, so let’s hope this doesn’t happen. Harrison Ford made Indiana Jones movies until he was 80 years old, but we highly doubt that Top Gun 3 will be his last film role. The possibility exists that the success of Top Gun Maverick will lead to the production of a new Top Gun film sooner rather than later, but at this time, such talk is purely speculative. Could be another 36 years, for all we know.

Characters Of Top Gun 3
It’s tough to picture Top Gun without Tom Cruise, but anything is possible. Perhaps Miles Teller’s character, Rooster, will be the focus of a new movie. The character of Ice Man, played by Val Kilmer, was recently killed off so he will not be returning to the role. Kilmer, or any other original Top Gun cast member, could make a cameo in flashback given how sparingly (and tastefully) Top Gun: Maverick used footage from the original film.
Nothing prevents the other actors from returning (including Jennifer Connelly, if the third film explores Maverick’s adjustment to civilian life and, um, step-fatherhood). nor Glen Powell, Lewis Pullman, Ed Harris, Monica Barbaro, Charles Parnell, Jay Ellis, Danny Ramirez, Greg Tarzan Davis, Manny JacintoTop Gun 3 Trailer or Bashir Salahuddin.
