Are Top Gun Maverick Stunts Performed By The Cast?
If you are a fan of tom cruise then you must have an idea about there is nothing in this world that this actor can not do himself.
Tom Cruise is well known all around the world for not just his good looking face but also for doing his own stunts in his films. But this time however the cast did not do any of their stunts by themselves because after performing all his stunts in the prequel Tom cruise got the idea that delivering dialogues inside a flying aircraft is more nerve-wracking than he thought it would be. So this time all the stunts were performed by professional stunts men, the makers of the film decided to go take extreme major to make sure that all the stunts look real even if the cast themselves did not do it and that’s the best part of the film because we could never doubt that they did not perform it themselves.
Who is Penny’s Daughter’s Father?
Penny Benjamin made her first appearance in Top Gun: Maverick when Pete went to the club owned by her. Pete and Penny talked about their life and the good times they had together in the prequel film. Penny then told Pete about her daughter Amelia and how she has been living her life as a single mother. When she talked about her daughter and being a single mother one thing that crossed the mind of the viewers was who is Amelia’s father because the film did not give any hints about who could it be. We can only assume that the character of Amelia’s father would reveal in the next chapter because in the current film the makers certainly did not reveal any facts about him. As we saw in the current film, Penny is currently having a romantic relationship with Pete, so we could see how Penny’s daughter Amelia and Pete form their bond in the next film, or we could see Penny’s ex make an appearance to make it a bit more dramatic. But, for the time being, the filmmakers want to keep her ex’s identity hidden for a reason it will most likely be revealed in the next film.
