Maverick Moment Was An Out Of Body Experience For Glen Powell

Hangman gives himself that call sign in the movie, and that might be put to the test when he’s training with Mitchell. However, the actor channeled his character’s confidence while filming, thanks to his and the cast’s intense equipment during training.

“We had to learn how to fly F-18 airplanes,” he explained. “I was doing so much prep on this movie, so when Day 1 came, Hangman was ready to go.”

While anyone else might find the prospect of flying just like a Navy Fighter anxiety-inducing, Powell made it sound like a cake-walk. However, standing next to Tom Cruise in a scene seemed to be an entirely different feeling altogether for the actor. He explained:

“There’s a moment when you’re on set standing next to Tom Cruise next to an F-18 jet wearing aviators where you think, ‘this is as good as it gets.’ It was such an out-of-body experience. “
