Val Kilmer dropped the bomb when he posted that he and Tom Cruise have said “yes” to the making of Top Gun 2s.
If Kilmer’s Facebook post is truth, Maverick (Tom Cruise) and Iceman (Kilmer) will be back in the skies sometime soon.
“I just got offered #topgun2 – not often you get to say “yes” without reading the script…,” Kilmer wrote on Nov. 16 on his official Facebook page.

The actor was quick to point out that being offered a role isn’t the same as actually doing it. There’s are doubts that the much-anticipated Top Gun sequel is even happening, but that doesn’t keep fans of the 80s classic film from getting excited.
“This is a long way off so calm down. This has been talked about for a long, long time and being offered a role is very different from doing a role. I jumped the gun with my post. I jumped the topgun… An innocent mistake. It was just such a wonderful phone call with my agent…,” he said, as reported by TV Guide.
“I have had treatment and I’m perfectly well,” Kilmer wrote Tuesday. “Don’t believe articles that say ‘a source says.’ If they can’t claim a relationship to me how can u trust they are telling the truth. Even when they do assign a name to whoever they gave 50 bucks to, how does a nurse or a parking attendant gonna know about my personal health,” he replies.
