As Tom Cruise’s Maverick gets ready to return to the skies to fight the good fight in Top Gun: Maverick, a breakdown of the characters for the sequel to the 1986 hit has surfaced on the internet. The news comes from ThatHashTagShow. The character breakdown is detailed below:

RIOT FKA WRIGLEY: Supporting Male (20-29) Goose’s son. All-American good looks. Rode a football scholarship to an Ivy League degree. He is in love with Sugar. He distrusts Maverick and dislikes what he stands for, although they have a lot of similarities. Eventually, comes to respect Maverick and uses his techniques. He is forced to eject in enemy territory and Maverick comes to save him.

PENNY BENJAMIN Supporting Female (40-55) The mother of “Miriam” and sister of “Caspar.” She is tough and has been around pilots all her life. She resists Maverick at first, but his charm wears her down. Maverick falls in love with her and “Miriam.”

SUGAR Supporting Female (20-29) Latina. Cool and perfect. She has a sense of a loner and is out to prove herself to everyone. Naturally gifted leader. She and “Wrigley” fall for one another.

RYAN KENDRICK “KANSAS” Supporting Male (20-29) Southern-Charm. A laidback southerner who’s always smiling, which is part of his competitive charm.

TIM FLETCHER “OTTER” Supporting Male (20-29) Nerdy, but super competitive. A member of the class and eventually gives up his spot so Maverick can join the final mission.

KELVIN GARCIA “SHOTGUN” Supporting Male (20-29) Burly and earnest

CINDA CLARENCE “DRONE” Supporting Female (20-29) Sharp and tough

ADMIRAL ROBBY BENJAMIN “CASPAR” Supporting Male (50-69) No nonsense Texan, laid-back demeanor masks his intensity. One star admiral. He distrusts and doesn’t like his selfish attitude in the Sky. Caspar knows how gifted Maverick is, and eventually lets him join the final mission.

BOYD Supporting Male (50) A two-star general who takes no shit. Tough and weathered.

MIRIAM Supporting Female (10-12) Penny’s daughter.

As expected there are a few more pilots for Maverick to begrudgingly share the skies with, along with a new love interest. So get ready for some more dogfights and ill-advised romances as Tom Cruise reprises one of his more famous roles as the hot shot fighter pilot, Maverick.

Top Gun: Maverick is setting its sights for a 2019 release.

    no psychtrist dealing with the stress of fighting Migs 30 years later? and no Tony Scott skylines.

  • Venomaide

    Better have a sexy volleyball game or GTFO.

  • Grendel Prime

    This sounds worse than ID4 Resurgence.
    What next? “Risky Business II: The Wolf of Winnetka” with special roles for Tom Cruise who helps save his son by starting and running a prostitution ring out of his high rise law office over the course of a weekend?

    Fuck the volleyball scene I want the song Dangerzone to make a return

    You might wanna spoiler tag your article. It pretty much details the entire film and all the plot points.
    Not that it won’t be just some action movie fodder. But I can see someone being pissed

  • Atirus Gaming

    Sounds like a “redemption” kind of story for Mav, since he felt responsible for the death of Goose.

  • Kindofabigdeal

    Anyone else notice it says Maverick is going to fall for a 12 year old? I think Feldman needs to release his doc sooner than later.

    • Duck O’Death

      BTW I loved you in Mindhunter!

  • the50sguystrikesback

    I pray Val Kilmer is on a SERIOUS diet. (ijs)

    • Brafdorf

      He went on a diet, cancer

  • Behemothrex

    LOL could this be any more by the numbers, the call sign must match their characters stereotypical traits. You know there are people that don’t fit stereotypical molds you know, sheesh. Waiting for the next pilot to be announced… Call sign Joker! Male 20-21 fun loving comic type who always say the wrong thing at the wrong time, but everyone comes to love….ahhh shoot me now.

    And what happened to Kelly, I guess we just dispose of her as Tom needs some new strange every movie.

    Penny Benjamin is the admiral’s daughter he got ballistic with referenced in the first film!!!
