The trailer paints Maverick as someone unwilling to progress up the ranks and, according to his senior, played by Ed Harris, facing “extinction”.

He’ll star alongside the Set It Up breakout Glenn Powell, Oscar winner Jennifer Connelly, Mad Men alum Jon Hamm, Insecure star Jay Ellis and Val Kilmer, returning to play Iceman.
