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.
