Oh boy...
Btw, regarding Kilmer's statement of that he would have to get a haircut, if I remember recent photos of him there might be something else necessary (unless Top Gun 2 plays on a cruise ship, sorta like Speed 2)

Awesome!

I'm hoping it'll be along the lines of Maverick being an instructor and 'old school' and not really liking the new automated drones and stuff but something will require people to do something, maybe vs North Korea.

I'm also hoping they'll shoot as much of it 'for real' as possible.

Considering Kilmer's sense of humor, it sounds like that statement was more of an acknowledgement of the weight he'd have to lose, since it's the most obvious of his changes since the eighties.

I'm thinking it morphs into Top Secret.  Tom Cruise is good in funny Cameos.  Val you can do it!

Yeah... I'd rather see a Top Secret sequel than Top Gun.  Some of these "revival's" look ok (see, Total Recall), but it's taking an old concept, and modernizing it.  I can't see that happening with the same dudes 25 years later - especially given Val looks like the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man.

What I don't get is, since the original Top Gun there have been actual WARS. Wars where making a sequel would be easier and make perfect sense. Why didn't they do that then? None of that inventing a Cold War scenario that was unlikely as hell even then, you have wars to set a sequel in. Why didn't anyone bite then?

The way I see it, there are two possibilities: either this is an extremely elaborate Rickroll, in which case it is one of the most awesome things anyone's ever done, or it is completely genuine, and therefore one of the stupidest ideas in the history of mankind. 
Sincerely,

Man it would have been so sweet to get a proper GOOD action movie about dogfighting and everything surrounding being a modern day fighter pilot. Although from what i've heard it's more about drones. I just hope they make it gritty with real planes and aerial shots and less CGI unless it's portrait properly and feels real.

Yea I don't think the movie has age that well. I just love the flight scenes, characters, music and of course for nostalgic reasons.

I just get that feeling that Tom just single handedly at that moment decided that Top Gun 2 is happening.  :lol
