‘That’s Classified’: Jay Ellis, Glen Powell Hint Top Gun 3 in the Works

The Top Gun sequel, Top Gun: Maverick, has broken records and is still doing well. The movie has earned millions at the box office and the critics are calling it better than the original – a compliment rare for sequels. Especially when a sequel comes 36 years after the original. To match the original film, Joseph Kosinski decided to depend less on CGI. The minimal use of CGI and excellent performance of the cast is what got the movie the almost perfect score on Rotten Tomatoes. Now, the fans are wondering if there will be another sequel a Top Gun 3.

At the MTV Movie & TV Awards 2022, an ET reporter talked to two of the cast members of Top Gun: Maverick. Jay Ellis was in the interview and the reporter asked him about the numbers and whether the cast was still in touch. The actor talked about how each of them still talks and discuss how big the movie became. When the reporter asked him about Top Gun 3, he responded they would need to scale up to more than the previous movie and also make it more relevant to the current time and scenario.

He was then joined by Glen Powell, who got asked the same question and the actor laughed and said, “that’s classified.” Before answering the question he looked at his co-star. The two shared a look and Jay Ellis said laughing that he had already answered the question and now it’s Powell’s turn. So could this answer mean that we might get a third entry in the franchise?

Is Top Gun 3 really happening?

Though the Top Gun 2 does not really leave any loose ends for a sequel, doesn’t mean it has no more stories to tell. The new recruits are loved and it seems they already know each other, but we do not know them so well. So the third film could be about passing down the torch to Rooster and his team.

The team has many interesting characters like Hangman, Phoenix, and Bob. Others too have got the attention of the audience and their performance was also great. With the success of the film, it could be followed by a third film. Also, the reaction of the two actors seems a bit shady so it could be that the movie is in its early stages.
