Japanese Flag Removed From Top Gun 2 – ManlyMovie

Japanese Flag Removed From Top Gun 2

Astute movie fans have noticed that the Japanese flag has disappeared from Tom Cruise’s flight jacket in the upcoming Top Gun: Maverick.  The flag of Taiwan has also been removed.

Mark MacKinnon declared the mystery of Maverick’s jacket solved with the discovery that China’s Tencent Pictures is one of the main producers of Top Gun: Maverick.  We can therefore infer that the order came down the pipe to remove material objectionable to Chinese communists.

Obviously, China is a big market these days, this also will play a part.

It is not clear where the new movie is set, other than partially in the northern hemisphere.
