Tom Cruise announces new Top Gun movie at Comic-Con

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – Tom Cruise made a surprise appearance at Comic-Con earlier this weekend to announce the sequel to the ’80s classic “Top Gun.”

Fans were surprised to see the movie star who made the announcement that coincided with the release of the movie’s trailer.

Some people noticed that Cruise’s jacket in the trailer no longer has the Japanese and Taiwanese flags, like it did 33 years ago. Rumored sources say the producers removed the flags as to not offend any Chinese fans with the placement of the two rival nations flags.

“Top Gun: Maverick” is expected to hit theaters next year.
