Update: Joseph Morgan Not Joining X-Men Spinoff

We previously reported that Joseph Morgan, who plays Klaus Mikaelson from The Originals, would be joining the X-Men series, which is currently titled as Gifted, but a report from Entertainment Weekly has revealed that to be false.
Lauren Shuler Donner, executive producer, tweeted an image of the cast at the read through with the caption ‘cast reading for Gifted’. It was then reported by EW that Morgan had simply been filling in a role for the read-through.

EW also confirmed that Gifted in not the official title but the working title during production of the series, with reference to how Professor Xavier referred to his students as ‘gifted’ and the title of the Astonishing X-Men comic book series, written by Joss Whedon.

Watch out. X-men are coming for you Dallas. #mutantsquad (missing the our badass muties @jamiejchung & @seanjamesteale )
