TOM Cruise looked ageless on set of the much-anticipated Top Gun reboot in California on Wednesday، the sun reported.

The actor، 56، was seen cruising around the Coronado Naval Base on his character Maverick's iconic motorcyle as he filmed the sequel - 32 years after the original was released.

The Rain Man star shot to fame as Pete "Maverick" Mitchell back in 1986، but proved not to have aged as he reprised the role this week.

The actor looked as cool as ever in his iconic bomber jacket and Aviator shades as he sped around on a Kawasaki Ninja Carbon bike، worth $30،000.

Laughing and joking with the crew between takes، Tom seemed to be loving every second of being Maverick again، after so many years away.

Tom finally revealed the sequel was being filmed back in June، by sharing the first promotional photo on social media.

The image showed Tom posing beside a fighter jet in his character's pilot jumpsuit، with the caption: "Feel the need."

The sequel، titled Top Gun: Maverick، will be set in the modern day as the pilots contend with drone warfare and fighter jets.

The flick will be a reverse of the original، with Maverick returning as an instructor who has to contend with a cocky female pilot called Penny Benjamin.

Speaking to Access Hollywood about the project in 2017، Tom said: “Aviators are back، the need for speed. We’re going to have big، fast machines.

"It’s going to be a competition film، like the first one…but a progression for Maverick."

Val Kilmer was rumoured to be reprising his role as Tom "Iceman" Kazansky، but this now hangs in the balance due to his recent health issues.

Meanwhile Kelly McGillis، who played Tom's on-screen lover Charlie Blackwood، has said she intends to "cameo".

Original Top Gun director Tony Scott had been developing the sequel before his death in 2012.

The new film will be directed by Tom’s Oblivion director Joseph Kosinski، and is due for release on July 26، 2020.
