The real question is why has she not done it already.
It's not hard to imagine her as Juliet, Ophelia, Portia and Desdemona.
But I would love to see her as Lady Macbeth. I have a feeling that Carey would be magnificent in this darker role.
Carey has terrific range as an actress and I think she will surprise us over the years as she continues to challenge herself.
I found a small article about how her dream was to be a stage actress rather than a film actress, and she is very eager to perform Juliet before too long.
I would encourage her to do it, no matter what, and as soon as possible.
Of course, I would love her to do some Shakespeare on screen, when and if the opportunity presented itself.
But she would also be great in some solved Shakespeare, too.
I could easily see her as Anne Hathaway, William Shakespeare's wife. There was one woman who inspired Shakespeare more than any other, and it was Anne.
I could also easily see her as King James's wife, whose name was also Anne. In my forthcoming version of Othello, we get to meet Queen Anne -- and she is one of the most fascinating characters in the life of Shakespeare. She also finds her way into his plays quite often, including Othello.

UPDATE: I saw her in Gatsby recently and she was wonderful. I think it's almost impossible to play Daisy on screen, making her sympathetic, but Carey was great. And there was a lot of chemistry between her and Leonardo DiCaprio.
