‘Top Gun: Maverick’: Charlotte Blackwood and the characters from the original film who didn’t return with Tom Cruise

It was 1986 when Tom Cruise stunned the world with the first film centered on Captain Pete Mitchell, but little by little the character returned for ‘Top Gun: Maverick’; Not even Charlotte Blackwood, here we tell you who else is.

Top Gun: Maverick premiered on Star Plus in less than a week and it is already one of the most watched titles on the platform behind The Simpsons and The Kardashians. However, it reminds us of the 1986 classic with which Tom Cruise stunned the world, a film in which we met Charlotte Blackwood (Kelly McGillis), but unfortunately we didn’t see him back,

If you’re a fan of speed and jaw-dropping action sequences in F-18 fighter jets, you should know that very few characters from Top Gun: Passion and Glory have returned for the highest-grossing film of the year. Buckle up and grab your aviator sunglasses because we’re about to tell you who were the people who didn’t join the newly available ranks. star Plus,

Charlotte Blackwood

Paramount Pictures

Kelly McGillis plays Charlotte Blackwood in Top Gun: Passion and Glory, one of the film’s iconic characters. His role was known as a civilian instructor and expert in the Department of Defense.

Furthermore, she became the crush and love interest of Maverick (Tom Cruise) and over time they fell in love and maintained a secret relationship. The classic of the eighties is available on Star Plus.

carol bradshaw

In case we missed one more character in Top Gun: Maverick (available on Star Plus) it was Carol Bradshaw (played by Meg Ryan). We remember her as the wife of ‘Goose’ (Anthony Edwards) and the mother of Rooster.

Mike ‘Viper’ Metcalf

Paramount Pictures

Of course we can’t forget the character ‘Viper’ introduced by Tom Skerritt. While his role as one of the instructors for the Special Division of fighter pilots was crucial in Top Gun: Passion and Glory, he’s also in charge of revealing his father’s fate to Maverick (Tom Cruise), an iconic moment you can relive. Can live in Star Plus.

Sam ‘Merlin’ Wells

Paramount Pictures

Entering the ranks of prominent and beloved characters, Tim Robbins’ Sam ‘Merlin’ is one of the main characters, as he was Maverick’s (Tom Cruise) flight mate, becoming his protective wing. He even shot down three out of six MiG-28s simultaneously, which only a few can count.

Rick ‘Jester’ Heatherley

Paramount Pictures

Top Gun: Passion and Glory featured one of the most respected trainers and former Navy pilot, Rick ‘Jester’ Heatherley (Michael Ironside). Despite his notable weight in the film available on Star Plus, a report in Screen Rant claims that a disagreement between the actor and one of the producers scuppered any chances of him returning to Top Gun: Maverick.

Leonard ‘Wolfman’ Wolfe

Paramount Pictures

And speaking of Air Combat Protectors, we must mention the ‘Wolfman’ played by Barry Tubb in Top Gun: Passion and Glory (you can watch it now on Star Plus). Here we see him as the ‘Hollywood’ wing (Whip Hubley).

Bill ‘Cougar’ Cortel

Paramount Pictures

Let’s not deny it: Bill (John Stockwell) and his panic attacks in Top Gun: Passion and Glory (available on Star Plus) dismissed him as a genius pilot, however, he also showed that real characters have It is necessary to be and make it clear that not all are so-called men of steel, especially when you are operating an F-18.

Rick ‘Hollywood’ Cousins

Paramount Pictures

Now it’s time to talk about Neven (Whip Hubley) who fought alongside Maverick (Tom Cruise) in Top Gun: Passion and Glory, however, his plane was shot down and luckily we get to see how They are rescued by a helicopter. Despite this, he did not return to Top Gun: Maverick, available on Star Plus.

Charles ‘Chipper’ Piper

Paramount Pictures

Not all pilots from Top Gun: Passion & Glory Academy make it to the fighter jets for the final match. This happened to ‘Chipper’ (Adrian Pasdar), who was Maverick’s (Tom Cruise) practice partner, but we no longer see him at the end of the movie, which you can find in the Star Plus catalogue.

Ron ‘Slider’ Kerner

Paramount Pictures

Lastly we’ll talk about ‘Slider’ (Rick Rossovich), Iceman’s (Val Kilmer) bodyguard. Undoubtedly one of the best in Maverick’s (Tom Cruise) squad in Top Gun: Passion and Glory, however, in the end he wasn’t even needed for the main cast or cameo in Top Gun: Maverick.
