Despite a two-year battle with throat cancer that took a serious toll on his health, VAL KILMER WILL return for the "Top Gun" sequel, "Top Gun: Maverick"!
Sources say he's been spotted at the San Diego hotel that the production crew has been using since filming started last week.
The rivalry-turned-friendship between Kilmer's Iceman and TOM CRUISE's Maverick is one of the all-time great BROMANCES in movie history. I mean, how many times over the last 32 years have you told a friend, "You can be my wingman anytime!" (???)
