Val Kilmer Says "Yes" to Top Gun 2 on Facebook

Maverick may have Iceman at his side

If Maverick (Tom Cruise) is flying again in Top Gun 2, then he'll have Iceman by his side, according to Val Kilmer's official Facebook page.

"I just got offered ‪#‎topgun2‬ - not often you get to say "yes" without reading the script...," Kilmer writes.

The actor is quick to point out that being offered a role isn't the same as actually doing it though, which means there's still some doubts about whether the Top Gun sequel is even happening. "This is a long way off so calm down. This has been talked about for a long, long time and being offered a role is very different from doing a role. I jumped the gun with my post. I jumped the topgun... An innocent mistake. It was just such a wonderful phone call with my agent...," he says.

The back and forth of the message had many fans confused in the comments. Some questioned Kilmer about whether he was healthy enough to play the fighter pilot again after rumors of a tumor circulated in January - which the actor also denied.

"I have had treatment and I'm perfectly well," Kilmer wrote Tuesday. "Don't believe articles that say 'a source says.' If they can't claim a relationship to me how can u trust they are telling the truth. Even when they do assign a name to whoever they gave 50 bucks to, how does a nurse or a parking attendant gonna know about my personal health," he replies.

Basically, if the movie is happening then Kilmer is in, but he cannot confirm or deny that the project is moving forward other than he's been approached about being involved.
