SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) – Adobe Systems Inc’s Flash, a once-ubiquitous technology used to power most of the media content found online, will be retired at the end of 2020, the software company announced Tuesday.
Adobe, along with partners Apple Inc, Microsoft Corp, Alphabet Inc’s Google, Facebook Inc and Mozilla Corp, said support for Flash will ramp down across the internet in phases over the next three years.
After 2020, Adobe will stop releasing updates for Flash and web browsers will no longer support it. The companies are encouraging developers to migrate their software onto modern programming standards.

We’ve seen from episode one of The Flash that time travel will be a huge part of the overall story. Those familiar with Barry Allen’s story from the comics have been very happy to see that that element is part of the show. While talking to THR, Grant Gustin (The Flash) shared what we might see toward the end of a very solid first season.
“We are diving deep into the time-travel element and it is going to be wild.”
Tom Cavanagh (Dr. Wells) adds,
“It’s ultimately why I signed on to this job. Not to play a scientist, but to play a time-traveling bandit. In comic books, when you start talking about time travel — if anybody has followed The Flash, then they know Reverse-Flash and The Flash are not just doing this right now in the present day. They have a long history and there’s nothing that we’re not going to pursue when we try to tell the story. We’re trying to tell all of it.”
Gustin concludes with,
“I think it would be fun if it totally changed the show for season two.”
Time travel and the butterfly effect have been shown to have a huge ripple effect in the Justice League: Flashpoint Paradox animated movie storyline. Flipping the whole show upside down to pull in elements of that story would be crazy and fun to see.
We’ve got less than a week now before the new DC Comics superhero hit “The Flash” races back with its 10 episode, the midseason premiere, “Revenge of the Rogues”. Today, The CW has released an extended trailer for upcoming second half of the first season and you can check it out in the player below! Continue reading
