Val Kilmer was spotted taking a stroll in downtown New York a few days after the “Top Gun: Maverick” trailer dropped at San Diego Comic-Con.
The actor, 59, confirmed in 2017 that he had throat cancer.
Kilmer, who was sporting a Clippers hat, jeans and what looked like a trachea breathing device, wasn’t too responsive to a fan on the street that captured the actor on video.
While rumors swirl about his health, he has kept his Facebook page active to squash fake news.
“I guess there’s some rumor I’ve passed on but I’m alive and well friends,” he wrote earlier this month.
Reps for the veteran actor did not respond to our requests for comment regarding his current health.
To celebrate the trailer for the sequel to the iconic 1986 film where he played opposite Tom Cruise, Kilmer posted a link to the video clip giving a nod to his co-star. Kilmer was confirmed to return as “Iceman” in June.
“You up for this one, Maverick?” he wrote.
Cruise was on hand to the surprise fans at Comic-Con to introduce the new “Top Gun: Maverick” trailer this week.
Kilmer, a father of two, makes appearances at various charity events; most recently the Monster Energy $50K celebrity charity basketball game, and he is active with art and his education foundation TwainMania.
“Top Gun: Maverick” is slated for a 2020 release.
