Top Gun: Maverick Plot

The sequel picks up after the original film, just decades later. The film will follow our hero Maverick in an age of unmanned drones. Pete “Maverick” Mitchell is expected to fight for the value of human pilots in the modern military.

Whiplash actor Miles Teller will be playing Goose’s son. Goose was Maverick’s former wingman, played by Anthony Edwards in Top Gun.

We don’t know much about Teller’s character, however all we have are pictures from the set, which surfaced around December 2018. Teller can be seen on set with Cruise and has an interesting mustache situation going on. If he’s Goose’s son he better have impressive facial hair.

We might not have ended up with Teller as Goose’s son. Initially, Miles Teller and Hidden Figures actor Glen Powell both auditioned for the role.

Powell’s audition was so impressive that he ended up being cast in a different, unidentified role.
