Tom “Iceman” Kazansky’s role in Top Gun: Maverick supports an ongoing theory about who really is to blame for Nick “Goose” Bradshaw’s death. Tom “Iceman” Kazansky’s role in Top Gun: Maverick supports the idea that he is partly to blame for Nick “Goose” Bradley’s (Anthony Edwards) death in the original Top Gun. Director Joseph Kosinski didn’t bring back a lot of characters from the 1986 Tony Scott cult-classic blockbuster for his follow-up. Aside from Tom Cruise reprising his role as Pete “Maverick” Mitchell, however, Top Gun: Maverick also sees the return of Val Kilmer as Iceman, who has a small but impactful role in the film.
While Paramount didn’t hide Kilmer’s involvement in Top Gun: Maverick, marketing for the film barely featured him. In fact, Iceman never physically appeared in any of the trailers, although it was eventually confirmed how he fit into its story. While Maverick remains a Navy Captain and never ascended beyond that rank in the many years that have passed since the events of Top Gun, his wingman has successfully climbed the ranks to become an Admiral. Over the years, every single time Maverick gets in trouble, Iceman is there to back him up, vouching for him and his capabilities. This saved Mitchell so many times from being permanently grounded. In Top Gun: Maverick, Iceman saves Maverick one last time as he personally chooses him to train a new crop of fighter pilots at TOPGUN fighter academy for a very important and highly dangerous mission. Iceman’s devotion to Maverick is ironic considering their intense rivalry during their own training days. They ultimately became friends, as seen at the end of Top Gun where they became flying partners. That should be enough reason for Iceman to keep an eye on Maverick, but there might be another explanation for this loyalty. Perhaps Kilmer’s Iceman knows that he is partly to blame for Goose’s Top Gun death, not Maverick. While the incident was ultimately ruled an accident, there’s an argument that Kazansky’s stubbornness was what caused the tragedy. Seeing how the older Bradshaw’s demise deeply affected Mitchell, Iceman may have taken it upon himself to always be there for him.
Goose’s death is an integral part of Top Gun: Maverick’s story. It’s the film’s emotional core as both Maverick and Bradley “Rooster” Bradshaw (Miles Teller) still grapple with the tragedy. While Iceman is somehow connected to it being the only other character in the sequel who was there when the accident happened, he’s relatively removed from this particular plot point in Top Gun: Maverick. He doesn’t get any kind of interaction with the younger Bradley, although Rooster did attend Iceman’s eventual funeral, however. Kazansky also never directly mentions Goose, although he and Maverick talk about his son. It’s also worth noting that Iceman is well-aware of Maverick pulling Rooster’s applications from the Naval Academy. It would have been great to see Rooster have some interactions with Iceman, as it could have revealed whether or not Kazansky actually harbors some guilt over what happened to Goose. Given what happens to Iceman by the end of Top Gun: Maverick, there is a slim chance that the franchise can definitively address this argument in the future. In any case, Top Gun: Maverick has also seemingly wrapped up all loose narrative ends regarding the accident with Maverick and Rooster’s reconciliation. Moving forward, Top Gun 3 needs to tackle an entirely new story that will set up its future beyond Cruise’s daredevil pilot.
Movie for Neill Blomkamp’s Gran Turismo in Story Details & Release Date
Sony reveals the first Gran Turismo movie story details, revealing a true story-inspired approach to adapting the video game franchise. Sony is raring its engines early as they reveal the first Gran Turismo story details and its release date. The studio behind the racing video game franchise has been working on developing a film adaptation for nearly a decade now, first kicking off in 2013 with Michael De Luca and Dana Brunetti producing. Development on the Gran Turismo movie would largely remain quiet, with Top Gun: Maverick’s Joseph Kosinski at one point attached to co-write and director with Alex Tse.
Kosinski’s incarnation of Gran Turismo wouldn’t be moving forward, leaving the property’s big screen chances in doubt as the Fast and Furious franchise continues to dominate the car-based genre in theaters. Sony would later take to reigniting development on multiple Gran Turismo adaptations, including a TV show for an unknown platform and a film with District 9’s Neill Blomkamp attached to direct. The studio now looks to have a lot of confidence in one of its Gran Turismo projects as it gears up its video game roster. Just a few weeks after the film was first announced to be in the works, The Wrap has brought word that Sony has set the Gran Turismo movie release date. The Neill Blomkamp-helmed adaptation will be hitting theaters on August 11, 2023, with the studio also revealing story details for the film. Gran Turismo will be based on a true story as a teenage player of the game wins a series of Nissan competitions and eventually becomes an actual professional race car driver.
A specific person wasn’t named in the Gran Turismo movie story details, the film looks to be basing itself around the real-life GT Academy run by Sony Computer Entertainment Europe, Polyphony Digital and Nissan Europe that ran from 2008-16. The now-defunct program took players who won National Finals competitions from around the world and sent them to a race camp held at Silverstone, United Kingdom, where the final winner would undergo an intense training program leading to them becoming professional drivers in races around the world. Though multiple winners have gone on to win major racing competitions, the British GT would bar four GT Academy drivers from entering in races due to a lack of real-world experience compared to other racers. Taking this angle for the Gran Turismo movie is sure to mark a more interesting approach to adapting the racing video game, which relatively has no plot and risked alienating both fans and newcomers alike by trying to develop an original story for the film. The Gran Turismo adaptation marks the latest project in PlayStation Productions’ ever-growing roster of adaptations, which began with this year’s Uncharted and is set to continue with The Last of Us series at HBO, a God of War series at Prime Video, a Twisted Metal series at Peacock, a Horizon series at Netflix and Ghost of Tsushima movie. Audiences will have to keep their eyes peeled for further details leading up to Gran Turismo’s August 11, 2023 release.
