It looks like everyone's favorite time-traveling misfits could be slated to meet up with yet another Hollywood icon. The third season of DC's Legends of Tomorrow is currently in production, and series creator Marc Guggenheim is keen to remind fans that the show is coming back sooner than later.

Guggenheim tweeted out a photo of a script from the season's fourth episode, titled "Phone Home," which is written by Matthew Maala and directed by Kevin Mock. Of course, film fans of all types will know the title references the classic 1982 Steven Spielberg film E.T.: The Extra Terrestrial. 

Legends' second season saw the eponymous hero team travel back in time to ensure George Lucas creates the Star Wars and Indiana Jones franchises, making the episode a fan-favorite. The E.T. reference this time around has led some fans to theorize that viewers are in for another bout of nostalgia, this time of the Spielbergian variety.

The episode could just draw thematic elements from the film, like unlikely friendships or the sense of being lost in an alien place, but there's always hope that "Phone Home" will include flying bicycles or something about Indiana Jones.

Returning to the CW for its third season on October 10, DC's Legends of Tomorrow is a production of Berlanti Productions developed for television by Greg Berlanti, Marc Guggenheim, Andrew Kreisberg and Phil Klemmer and starring Victor Garber, Brandon Routh, Arthur Darvill, Caity Lotz, Franz Drameh, Ciara Renée, Falk Hentschel, Amy Pemberton, Dominic Purcell, Wentworth Miller, Matt Letscher, Maisie Richardson-Sellers and Nick Zano.
