Indiana Jones IV

Like a lot of fans, I might take a bit of time to get used to the title of the third instalment - Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.
It seems a bit long, which is odd as it's only a syllable longer than Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark, but then the IJ bit was added to the latter film in retrospect, while Temple of Doom and The Last Crusade are a bit snappier.

It appears to be a good myth to go for - the first was found in Belize (unfortunately, they've already used Temple of Doom, so can't call it Indiana Jones and the Skull of Doom, which would have been a great title). With a fair bit of the action being in 1950s South America, I wonder who the bad guys are going to be - hidden mad priests (as in Temple of Doom), communists as in US 1950s fears, or hiding Nazi war criminals?
