Kilmer will be reprising his part of Iceman in 'Top Gun: Maverick', which is filming now ahead of release in 2019.
After years of speculation, Val Kilmer has apparently been confirmed as playing a part in the long-awaited sequel to Top Gun, reprising his Iceman character alongside Tom Cruise.
The Wrap reported on Thursday (June 7th) that Kilmer, 58, is set to appear alongside Cruise in Top Gun: Maverick, a sequel that’s set to arrive 33 years after the iconic 1986 original.
Filming for the Top Gun sequel began last month after what has felt like endless months of rumours, with Joseph Kosinski, who took charge of the much-vaunted Tron sequel Legacy back in 2010, behind the camera as director.

With a cast and crew packed with A-list talent, this film seems like it should be a first-rate thriller. But a deeply compromised screenplay lets it down badly, leaving the actors floundering as people who make little logical sense. Meanwhile, the mystery develops in directions that aren't remotely interesting, leaving the entire movie feeling flat. At least it's beautifully photographed in stunning Norwegian scenery.
It opens in Oslo, as detective Harry (Michael Fassbender) struggles both with debilitating alcoholism and trying to be a father to his teen son with ex-girlfriend Rakel (Charlotte Gainsbourg), who is now married to plastic surgeon Mathias (Jonas Karlsson). When he's able to work, Harry is looking into missing women cases with his rookie partner Katrine (Rebecca Ferguson). And several of these disappearances seem to be connected in some way, linking back to a murder years ago in Bergen that was investigated by two local cops (Val Kilmer and Toby Jones) and was somehow connected to a leery property developer (J.K. Simmons) who is now trying to lure a winter sporting championship to Oslo.

As winter continues to breathe its icy breath, the hunt gets more and more challenging. But when they manage to connect the killings to an old cold case, they decide to lure him out using a new recruit as bait.
