FOX’s upcoming series based on Marvel’s “X-Men” is going to be called “Gifted.” The series will be directed by Bryan Singer, who also directed the X-Men films. Lauren Shuler Donner, X-Men franchise producer, posted a picture of the cast via Twitter. It seems Joseph Morgan, star of CW’s “Originals” and “Vampire Diaries”, has been cast in Gifted. Currently, the Originals fate is uncertain due to no announcement of the series return and Vampire Diaries has wrapped up its final season. Morgan was cast as the mutant Eclipse although he may only appear in the pilot episode. The Gifted cast includes Jamie Chung (Once Upon A Time) as the mutant Blink; Blair Redford (Switched at Birth, Satisfaction) as the mutant Thunderbird; Stephen Moyer (True Blood) as an attorney named Reed; Amy Acker (Person of Interest) as Reed’s estranged wife, Caitlin; Natalie Alyn Lind (Gotham) as one of their mutant children, Lauren; Percy Hynes White (Defiance) as Andy; Coby Bell (Burn Notice) as Jace; and Emma Dumont (Pretty Little Liars) as Polaris.

Gifted is expected to connect the X-Men movies, same as “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” connects the Avengers films.
