Kevin Smith directed the fan-favorite “The Flash” episode, “The Runaway Dinosaur” last season. Now, the helmer is set to return to the superhero series to direct another episode for Season 3.

“I know I’m going back to ‘The Flash,’ first week of September, to direct episode 7 of Season 3,” he revealed in a new interview with Den of Geek.

Smith also expressed his interest in directing an episode of “Arrow” and including his villainous creation Onomatopoeia. “Oh my god, I would love that so much,” Smith expressed about bringing his character to life. “I’ve not heard from anybody over there, even though I’ve talked about it in the press quite a bit and stuff.”

“Still haven’t heard anything back from ‘Arrow,’” he added. “You know, I wish, it would be amazing because I would love to write and direct Onomatopoeia in the show. I know they’re doing – what is it? – Wild Dog this year, as well as Vigilante. So maybe they’re just like ‘we don’t need you’, or whatever. But, at the moment, anyone over there raises a flag; I’m like ‘please, let me in!’”

While he waits for the call from the “Arrow” heads, he wouldn’t mind jumping on board another series, “Even if they don’t, maybe I could do it on ‘Flash,’ or ‘Legends Of Tomorrow,’ or now ‘Supergirl’ as well. There’s a couple of shows there.”

Season 3 of “The Flash” returns to The CW on Oct. 4.
