Tom Cruise, aka Pete "Maverick" Mitchell, made a surprise appearance at the famed Comic-Con in San Diego.
57-year-old Cruise was introduced Thursday to a screaming crowd by Conan O'Brien and he took the stage to fire people up about the much anticipated sequel to "Top Gun."
Cruise announced to cheers from the crowd, "34 years ago , I made a movie in San Diego and shot across the street in a restaurant."
He continued, "San Diego is a special place for Top Gun and the sequel was shot here last summer."
Cruise explained, "I was always asked ‘When are you going to do another one?’ Well, you’ve been very patient with me. I felt like it was my responsibility to really deliver for you,” said Cruise who called "Top Gun" a "love letter to aviation."
