Fake fans are looking forward to the return of Hugh Jackman as Wolverine in Deadpool & Wolverine, while the real cinema enjoyers are waiting to see Dogpool on screen. In a recent interview with Empire, Ryan Reynolds gave us some more details on the canine companion and the real-life star behind the character.

Apparently, Dogpool's real name is Peggy, and she was once voted Britain's ugliest dog, which basically already makes her a celebrity. "I was a huge proponent for her because she feels like the animal manifestation of Wade Wilson," Reynolds said. "It was one of those things where you just keep listening to the movie, and Dogpool became a staple."

"They got Peggy in fighting shape ... she was treated like a queen, as she should be," he continued. Peggy doesn't look like the most action-oriented dog in the world, but she's sure to have her moments when Deadpool & Wolverine releases on the 26th of July.
