‘Top Gun: Maverick’ Ending Explained

When describing Top Gun: Maverick, the word “successful” is an understatement. The film, which recently debuted on digital platforms earlier this week, is a worldwide phenomenon and stars Tom Cruise and Val Kilmer in iconic original film roles.

The sequel can appeal to both longtime and new fans thanks to a number of callbacks to the 1986 film, such Miles Teller’s interpretation of “Great Balls of Fire” and Maverick’s frequent use of the phrase “Talk to me, Goose.”

The climactic soaring scenario, when we’re unsure of what the heck will happen to our favourite leads, might be confusing. Every time it appears as though they could survive, it also appears as though they are going to perish. For your benefit, we’ve outlined everything below:

At the beginning of the film, which begins more than 30 years after its predecessor, Pete “Maverick” Mitchell (Cruise) is a test pilot who runs the risk of being grounded after blowing up a prototype while exceeding Mach 10, which is a hypersonic speed that is 10 times the speed of sound. Admiral Tom “Iceman” Kazansky (Val Kilmer), a former foe-turned-friend, intervenes at this point to prevent Maverick from being grounded by recommending that he train a select group of TOPGUN alums for a perilous mission that needs them to blow up an unauthorised uranium tank.

Maverick, who is still mourning the loss of his wingman Goose, grudgingly consents after learning that his late friend’s son, Bradley “Rooster” Bradshaw (Teller), is a student in the group from whom he must select the mission’s participant.

The pilots butt heads in the meantime, particularly Rooster and Hangman (Glen Powell), who has a tendency to be a “every man for himself” type of guy. Maverick is grounded after Iceman’s death and the loss of his supporter before demonstrating that he is the only one capable of completing the task in the allotted time.

 Top Gun: Maverick ending explained?

As the team’s new commander, Maverick finally decides to send Rooster along with him on the mission. Although things become a bit sticky on the way back, the crew manages to blow up the tank safely. When Rooster is being attacked by missiles, Maverick decides to take the initiative and charge forward, blowing up his plane and making everyone think he has died.

Thanks to that handy eject button, he isn’t. And defying instructions, Rooster returns to the scene and, when his plane is shot at, ejects as well. In the end, the two steal a vintage jet and shoot down numerous hostile aircraft while missing one. When everything seems to be going wrong, Hangman comes to the rescue by taking out their final target.
