My guess is that Cruise will play the role of the commanding officer of Top Gun, aka Fighter Weapons School. This was Tom Skerrit's role as "Viper" in the first movie. I doubt however that Kelly McGillis will reprise her role, she looks old and overweight today, and her career pretty much imploded two decades ago.
Of course, the F-14's are gone, in favor of the F-18, perhaps even some stealthy F-35C's. The difference being, that unless they cheap out, the movie-makers could hire some real Russian pilots and planes as the opposition, versus using American-made F-5's as in the first movie. It would be interesting to see the F-18 or F-35C versus the MIG-31, SU-57, etc. Failing in that, the USA bought 21 MIG-29's from Muldova when that tiny former Soviet state went broke.
