Roth will appear on the panel along with the film's director, Neil Burger, and quite a few cast members including Shailene Woodley, Theo James, Ansel Elgort, Ben Lamb, Ben Lloyd-Hugher, Christian Madsen, Maggie Q, Mekhi Phifer, and Miles Teller.

If you are attending the convention and not necessarily interested in standing in line for the panel, Summit Entertainment will be all about Divergent at their convention floor booth so you can head there and see what all they have to offer.

Divergent opens in theaters on March 21, 2014.
