Could Joss Whedon be the ABC's Hulk series' mystery writer?

We've already heard that ABC's Hulk TV series is waiting for a mystery writer. Could it be Joss Whedon?

As we've just heard, Whedon's been signed for an "exclusive deal" with Marvel, meaning that he's all set to write and direct The Avengers 2, as well as an ABC Avengers spin-off TV series.

But this Marvel deal also suggests he may be about to work on other Marvel-related properties as well as Avengers. Yesterday, we heard that the ABC Hulk TV series was waiting in a holding pattern until a certain "very, very concrete" writer became available:

"We have a writer that we want to bring on board, a very, very concrete name. I can’t reveal it, but we want to wait for that writer. It’s a writer who is otherwise engaged. So right now we are in a holding pattern until that writer becomes free. Then we’re going to do a new draft of the script.”

That's what Guillermo del Toro told Collider in a recent interview. Is that mystery writer Joss Whedon? It's pure conjecture right now, but we certainly hope so.

More news on this as we get it.
