Tom Cruise made a surprise appearance at San Diego Comic-Con on Thursday to hype the forthcoming ‘Top Gun: Maverick’ and fans went wild in Hall H.

Originally slated for this year, Paramount pushed the film to 2020 to experiment some more with its flight sequences. The sequel explores drone technology and sees Cruise portray a flight instructor.

Along with some great flight sequences, we get glimpses of Cruise’s iconic bomber jacket and Ray-Ban sunglasses — and even a new generation of shirtless volleyball players, led by actor Glen Powell.

Val Kilmer will reprise his role as Tom “Iceman” Kazansky in the sequel. Jon Hamm, Ed Harris, Lewis Pullman, Charles Parnell, Jay Ellis, Bashir Salahuddin, Danny Ramirez, and Monica Barbaro round out the cast.
