After confirming there will be a sequel to his 1986 hit “Top Gun,” Tom Cruise can’t seem to stop dishing about the movie.

While promoting his upcoming movie, “The Mummy,” Cruise told “Access Hollywood” what the title of the sequel will be.

“It’s not going to be called ‘Top Gun 2,’ it’s gong to be called ‘Top Gun: Maverick,'” Cruise said. “I didn’t want a number. You don’t need a number.”

The nickname of Cruise’s character in “Top Gun” is Maverick.

Cruise is mum on specifics, though he has said he will shoot the movie within the year.

According to reports director Joseph Kosinski, who helmed Cruise’s 2013 movie “Oblivion,” is considering to take on “Top Gun: Maverick.”
