Christopher McQuarrie, the guy who penned The Usual Suspects, has just confirmed with The Vulture that Maverick will return as the lead in the upcoming Top Gun 2 sequel.  With that said, Tom Cruise will be reprising his role as the famed pilot.

If this movie does actually come to fruition, Tony Scott will be the man with the directorial reigns with Jerry Bruckheimer most likely producing.  My only question is will Iceman actually have a prominent role in the flick because if he does, Kilmer better be the only man playing him.

So what are your thoughts on the film.  Does it make you feel better that Cruise will have the lead in the sequel since they are most likely going forward with this project?  Please leave your comments below.
