We at Entertainment Weekly are going big for New York Comic Con this year. How big? Dark Phoenix big.

Sophie Turner, the star of Game of Thrones and the next sequel in the X-Men franchise, will be descending on the big Con in the Big Apple this Saturday as part of a host of panels coming to fans.

EW partnered with ReedPop to curate events at the geek convention, including a Brave Warriors panel with Manifest’s Josh Dallas and The Man in the High Castle’s Joel de la Fuente; The Visionaries panel with visionary directors like Taika Waititi (Thor: Ragnarok) and Drew Goddard (Cabin in the Woods); and an assemblage of stars who are — as the other panel name suggests — Breaking Big.

These panels will go down in the Studio @ NYCC, just around the corner from the Javits Center on 39th Street. Get the details on EW’s NYCC panels below. (All times are EST.)
