The CW is getting ready to kick off all the new seasons of their superhero series with The Flash, Arrow, Supergirl and Legends of Tomorrow. Last year, you may remember when the network released a phenomenal sizzle reel featuring several of the heroes and villains fighting each other, called “Superhero Fight Club” which became incredibly popular among the fans.
Today The CW released 2.0 version of the Superhero Fight Club as the DC TV heroes welcomes Supergirl, who is flying over from CBS over to The CW as the show has a new home at that network. You can check it out below along with season premiere synopsis for all four series.

When Barry starts forgetting parts of his old life, the Reverse Flash (guest star Matt Letscher) taunts his nemesis and tells him that there will be serious repercussions for Barry and the ones he loves if he continues to live in this alternate universe.

With Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) guiding him from the bunker, Oliver is forced to deal with a city that has become overrun with both criminals and a slew of new (and painfully inexperienced) vigilantes. Watching Oliver try to balance his jobs as both the mayor and also the protector of Star City, Felicity suggests he form a new team, but Oliver resists. However, when a deadly new criminal, Tobias Church (guest star Chad L. Coleman), enters the picture, Oliver realizes the best thing for the city might be a new team of superheroes. Meanwhile, the flashbacks take us to Russia where Oliver faces off against the Bratva.
