Might be, has it been confirmed if he's supposed to be Indy's son or just a sidekick?

The reference is neat and typically Indiana Jones. All of the movies have been full of references to old films. Remember the scene from Raiders of the Lost Ark, when Indy chases the Nazi-Truck that carries the Ark? He hangs on the trucks hood, climbs the whole way backwards underneath of the truck, sticks the handle of his whip somewhere and gets tossed around by the truck. Then he climbs into the truck again and fights his way to the steering wheel.
This stunt is a one to one rip off from an old Zorro movie.

The whole second movie, Temple of Doom, is inspired by the old "Gunga Din" movie.

Thats the references that I know of, but I am pretty sure there are more then these. The Indy outfit is a reference too, but I do not know of what movie.

Shia's character is going for a Brando look... not Shia. I'm guessing this will be used to some comic effect in the story. And it's another great reason to wear another leather jacket in the stifling heat and humidity of South American jungles!

True, and another old film connection for old film buffs too.

I heard that Bogart in TREASURE OF THE SIERRA MADRE was also an influence on Indiana's character.
