Maverick will team up with Goose's son

"Top Gun" focused on risk-taking pilot Maverick and his family-oriented wingman, Nick "Goose" Bradshaw (Anthony Edwards). The bromance ended tragically, with Bradshaw dying after ejecting from their stalled jet.

Already showing he's following in Cruise's footsteps, Teller tweeted, "I feel the need ..." to confirm the casting. 

While there are no points for second place, Powell's Twitter reaction after losing out was pretty fantastic.

Cruise's main "Top Gun" adversary, Tom "Iceman" Kazansky (Val Kilmer), will be back. Kilmer, who has battled throat cancer, has been playfully campaigning to face off with Cruise on social media and was spotted in "Maverick" headquarters in San Diego.
