The Paramount movie, which hits theaters next summer on July 12, 2019 and is now in production in San Diego, follows fighter pilots who are entangled in a drone-driven airspace which has made their flying obsolete. The Wrap reports that Kilmer will return to the franchise to play Maverick's longtime rival in the upcoming sequel.
The actor confirmed Top Gun: Maverick was officially a go previous year.

Well, guess what? Val Kilmer has been roped in for the second edition of the film as well which has been titled as "Top Gun: Maverick". Filming is already well underway - Cruise tweeted a photo announcing the project to his fans last Wednesday with the hashtag "Day 1". It's just a shame that Goose (Anthony Edwards) won't be there, but hopefully, there will be a nod to the character.
