    Okay. Here's what I'm saying. We've got Superman, and he has an "S" shield. It stands for the House of El in Kryptonian, but happens to look like an English "S" for "Superman."

    Now, it would be weird if Zod's Kryptonian symbol looked exactly like a Z, and Faora's exactly like an F. That would be campy and cheesy, as I said above. But the genius of the symbol design here is that it is vaguely similar to each respective English letter. See:

    [​IMG]

    Note: the symbol is reminiscent of a backwards "Z" terminating in a long curve.

    [​IMG]

    The symbol is reminiscent of an "F" terminating in a split curve.

    Is it exact? No, but there are design elements there that make it reminiscent, albeit alien.

    This looks awesome. I used this (and a Faora Lego photo) as a guide to design the stylized version:

    Here's my General Zod stylized version (with help from HankTheTurtle for some 3D work):

    Thanks fanboiii,so it's her last film before MOS looking at her filmography.

    I have seen 5 Days of War and Kleinruppin Forever from 2004,I think it's still on youtube?,although she was only briefly in these films,she was some kind of sexy biker rock chick who smoked a lot in it if I remember right,it was funny to see her from eight years ago.

    Aha,I found Kleinruppin Forever,it's a foreign language film and it takes time to buffer,and yes,it's not very good,but Antje appears at 13 mins for about 3 seconds lol,then sexy hot at 24:20,and again at 91:30.

    http://vdownload.eu/watch/2011860-kleinruppin-forever.html

    The film plays at the above link for free,there is a download option and I cant say if that works as I haven't tried it,unless you are a big fan of hers I wouldn't bother though,she is on screen for about 40 seconds in all,but at the 24:20 and the 91:30 part she does look pretty hot,a young Faora in training :woot:

    At least it's not like the Nike swoosh thing on the S that loads of people kept on and on about seeing.

    Thanks for that Greeneyes. I've wanted to see some of her earlier performances for a while. There's actually a few on youtube, including a trailer for a film that she wrote.

    She seems easy to cast in the tough/bad female, though I imagine that she wouldn't want to end up getting stuck in a typecast.

    Hi rakerforest,she does look like a tough or bad female,I'd add sadistic to that as well:woot:

    Have you seen Lena Olin in Romeo is Bleeding?,what a great performance from her and Gary Oldman in that,I can see Antje playing a major role as a similar kind of character,and as you say with the Faora role,she could end up being typecast as a 'psycho beatch'

    If you don't mind,can you post a few links to the youtube movies or clips of her that you mention,or pm me them if you prefer?

    Her voice is a bit freaky,she does sound really young,does this happen often when speaking a second language?,maybe German speaking women sound young when speaking English,or it's just Antje's natural voice and I'm over thinking:whatever:

    Ya das ist gut...

    Thanks rakerforest,I had seen Die Nacht davor before,but I hadn't seen the Elisa trailer,it is new though so good find!

    She looks so pretty in that Elisa trailer,and of course there are quite a lot of various interviews with her for Pandorum on youtube too.

    I actually noticed that trailer on Roman Kuhn's site first. He's the one who directed it. There's also an ad with her on the site and several rare photos of Antje. Some of them are her posing as Hedy Lamarr.

    I have a feeling her and several other people were expecting Pandorum to be her big break, however, the film performed poorly;though it may have led to her landing the Faora role. It looks like Man of Steel has already done more for her career since she got another role in a big film after it.

    Her accent probably hinders how much she can do in English speaking films, though I'm sure it's something that can and has been improved since Pandorum.

    Did you notice that Berlin Am Meer was also on that site that you provided a link to? I sped through it and only noticed her in one scene. She was there for about three seconds.

    She shows up in Berlin Am Meer around the 15 minute mark. She's only there briefly, though I may have missed other scenes she was in. The main character seems to have a quick fantasy about her at some sort of rave or dance club.

    http://www.romankuhn.eu/WEB/HEDY_1.html

    That's the Hedy link.

    http://www.romankuhn.eu/WEB/ANTJE_1.html

    That's the start of her photos. The arrows to slide to the next picture are at the bottom by the RK. One of the photos is the one you see if you go to her official site; that's really all there is on the site at this time.

    http://www.romankuhn.eu/WEB/K-DINO.html

    There's the commercial, which is also on youtube.

    Supposedly, Roman Kuhn was going to direct a feature film with her starring in it. Apparently, that project never took off.

    No problem.

    I don't think she'll be going back to doing that sort of work anytime soon.

    Her acting work actually started in a musical ran by some institute over in Germany, and I know there's footage of it somewhere. Some of it is part of a fan-made video on youtube, but I don't know how the person acquired the footage.

    Also, Nobels Testament is available on that site you provided
