Top Gun 2 is now confirmed!
The movie's shooting have been started and it's scheduled for release on July 12, 2019.

Here:
https://variety.com/2018/film/news/tom- ... 202826439/

In the past I've read rumors that Top Gun 2 would feature the F-35C (or that the main character portraited by Cruise would "fly" one).
While the movie's plot is still "under wraps", one can read the following in the link above:

Although the plot is being kept under wraps, it’s been previously reported that Cruise’s character would now be a flight instructor and that the film would explore a world of drone technology, fifth-generation fighters and the end of the era of dog-fighting.


“The navy is very different now than it was in 1986,” said Kosinski, who previously worked with Cruise on 2013 sci-fi pic “Oblivion.”


Which could somehow confirm the above (F-35C).

But then again there's this "teaser pic":

Sponsored by Boeing, they feel the need (pun intended) to keep the St Louis production line running. :lol:

I think you all misunderstand the poster.

He's not headed towards the Super Hornet, he's saying goodbye on his way to the F-35C :whistle:

Maybe the USN was referring to this display of "talent":

Oh Jesus. The USAF's official Twitter is parroting the "1875mph" speed idiocy. Looks like both are run by retards. :doh:

I just saw a news blurb that movie poster. It was just a teaser they have not even started filming yet. The image was made by a publicist, not a set image or even a concept art. But I guess we will know more next year....

Would be cool if they obfuscate the F-35 by using A, B, and C. Joe public wouldn't know the difference, especially between the B. So you have Maverick escape at the end on a freighter after landing vertically. The rest of the movie you jack with people by using A and C interchangeable. Really screw with people and refuel from a boom after taking off from a catapult...

Another thought, since "Maverick" will be an instructor and be flying a "Red Air" plane, it makes sense that it's a Super Hornet since that is an older generation plane, just like the A-4 Skyhawk in the original movie.

Shouldn't he be flying F-16N?

Wonder what the adversary would be? They can't get away with another "Mig-28".
Su-27,Su-35, Mig-35, J-11 maybe.

Will it be flown by the Chinese or the Russians? Thats just box office suicide.
So will it be Syrians?
Iranians? That would be strange seeing the F-14, the hero of TopGun 1 as the antagonist of Topgun 2.

What about a rouge Russian or Chinese General with an Ace pilot. Then they'll have some help with the airforce of that country making the secondary protagonist (Iceman) a Russian\Chinese pilot.
