Cruise’s insistence on getting Kilmer back in the sequel was made public by the film’s producer, Jerry Bruckheimer during an interview with People . “We all wanted him to be in, but Tom was adamant that if he was going to do another Top Gun , Val had to be in it,” said the businessman.
” Kilmer is a very good actor and just as great a guy, ” said Bruckheimer, recounting, “We had a great time with the first one and we wanted to get part of the gang together again .”
In his memoirs, published in 2020, Kilmer states that even if the film is called Maverick , the character’s nemesis will always be Iceman. “The two go together like salt and pepper and I would have mattered if the producers do not they contacted me because, as I said The Temptations , ‘I’m too proud to beg'” .
