Nope, Flash will be around for a long time. As a media player, Flash accommodates digital rights management (DRM) which hasn’t been addressed in the HTML5 specs. As an applications platform, Flash has a large, installed base in corporate environments where there’s no compelling rationale for rewriting working applications in HTML5. For new applications, HTML5 has advantages over Flash: content is better exposed to search engines, there’s complete integration with other document elements, no plugins are required and HTML5 tools are free.
