‘Top Gun: Maverick’ Spoiler Thread

Don’t you hate spoilers? Possibly the only thing worse than spoilers is not being able to freely talk about a film you just saw. Well, fear not. Here at ScreenAge Wasteland, you can Spoil Away! with Top Gun: Maverick.

I don’t think anyone believed a sequel to 1986’s Top Gun was a good idea when the project was first announced. Yet, the Tom Cruise-led film has been garnering raving reviews since the film had its premiere at CinemaCon 2022. The film’s Rotten Tomatoes score is near-perfect (so yes, it’s certified fresh while the 1986 film is certified rotten).

If you’ve seen the film, tell us: is it better than the original? What did you think of Val Kilmer’s role? How were the flight scenes? Is this one of the few worthy legacy sequels? Would you gladly watch a Top Gun 3 if it were made? Who was your favorite new character?

The comments below have been spoiler certified. So what did you think of Top Gun: Maverick?
