The sequel to the 1986 film Top Gun has been in theaters for a few weeks now. Fans seem to be really enjoying Top Gun: Maverick just as much as the first film. Tom Cruise was very adamant that Val Kilmer returns in this movie as Tom “Iceman” Kazansky.
Val’s children, Mercedes and Jack, were thrilled to see their dad in the new movie, especially after all of his struggles in recent years. They had to use technology to help his voice since Val is recovered from throat cancer.
